INFORMATION ON COVID-19

We are closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure we are taking the necessary measures to protect the health and wellbeing of our clients, volunteers, and employees. For our most recent statement, click here.

MOBILE FOOD MARKET

The Nourish and Develop Foundation’s Mobile Food Market is a refrigerated van (sometimes with a trailer) that sets up in various locations around Brock Township to offer fresh local produce, meal kits, and prepared meals at affordable prices.

We want to remind folks that if they have COVID-19 symptoms, have been outside of Canada in the last 14 days, or have been in close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19, they should stay home and follow federal, provincial, and local health official guidelines.

2022 Market Dates & Times – The Mobile Food Market currently operates on a rotating schedule, every Wednesday and Thursday. These schedules are subject to change as we navigate the best locations, days and times for this program, as well as the evolving COVID landscape.

Due to the current rise in COVID-19 cases, we have decided to adapt our operation for the foreseeable future. We will be operating outdoors, exclusively. We will be setting up a menu and table at the side door of our van, and serving customers from there. By keeping our food items inside the van, this allows our produce to stay protected from extreme cold. We will be doing our best to ensure that these adapted setups remain safe and accessible to our valued customers.

We have also decided to temporarily eliminate our 5:00 – 6:00 PM time slot, meaning we will only be visiting 8 of our 12 locations. This is in consideration of our team, avoiding operating outdoors in the evening, when it is colder and darker.

If you or someone you know is in need of food and is unable to visit our Mobile Food Market, please contact our team at 705-432-2444 and we will be happy to help find a workable solution.

For upcoming schedules, visit this page of our website, follow us on social media, or contact our team.

Think – mobile produce stand in a rural area!

It’s an 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).

Everyone is welcome to shop at Mobile Food Market – come meet our friendly team, check out our selection of delicious, affordable, local fruits and vegetables, and see how this project has become a positive and convenient resource for our community.

Social distancing and mask-wearing is required. Cancellation announcements due to weather or COVID-19 will be made via social media.

Cash, credit, debit and gift cards are accepted.
