Charlestown - Support the Fresh Truck Mobile Market @ Charlestown BHA

The health and safety of our volunteers, Volunteer Leaders, and the people we serve is our top priority. We are working with our Community Partners to ensure that state & city guidance is followed to slow the spread of COVID-19. Read about our Safety Requirements.

About the organization: At About Fresh we work to radically impact community health by celebrating food culture and strengthening communities with fresh food. Our Fresh Truck program has transformed retired school buses to serve as a mobile market full of fresh produce that drives to a variety of neighborhoods around Boston to deliver fresh, healthy food to the people who need it most! The Fresh truck operates weekly markets at 18 locations around the city. 

Our redesigned 'Open Air' Market strives to increase access to fresh food while providing increased opportunities for households to use SNAP/HIP benefits. We do this outside while trying to keep our staff, volunteers, and shoppers safe during the COVID-19 crisis. During these markets, shoppers have the option of selecting items from our menu of quality fruits and vegetables at a low-cost.

Volunteers directly support the Fresh Truck 'Open Air' Market by:
Filling and bagging shopper orders on the bus
Cleaning/Sanitizing equipment & materials
Greeting & monitoring the flow of the line
Taking order(s) from shoppers

MBTA Accessible: 5 minute walk from bus routes 92 & 93
