This summer, CHEP is piloting a mobile fresh food cart initiative in collaboration with AKA Artist Run Centre’s Locals Only project, a multi-year art project that explores food security and community connections. The goal of this mobile market, essentially a fruit stand on wheels, is to make nutritious food more affordable and accessible in the community, while building awareness of CHEP’s many programs and services.
The market operates on a bi-weekly rotation at locations throughout Riversdale and travels alongside AKA’s mobile art cart. We encourage folks to stop by, grab a healthy snack, then join the Locals Only youth for a 15 minute art project.
