The Nourish and Develop Foundation is honoured to receive the 2021 Accessibility Award for our Mobile Food Market!

Have you heard about our Mobile Food Market yet? Think ­– travelling produce stand in a rural area! Visiting towns all over Brock Township like Gamebridge, Manilla, Wilfrid, Beaverton, Sunderland, Cannington, & Port Bolster! Providing fresh local produce, meal kits and prepared meals at an affordable price to everyone.

The Mobile Food Market is our innovative solution to rural food deserts (areas with no, or limited access to grocery stores) and food insecurity (ensuring people in our community have a sufficient quality and quantity of nutritious food). The Mobile Food Market is available to anyone who would like to use it!
