Fighting Food Insecurity: 2021 Bright Spots

The YMCA of Western North Carolina’s nutrition team runs multiple mobile markets in five counties every month, providing free food to all community members. The markets provide fresh produce paired with healthy recipes and activities, such as cooking demonstrations.

“My dad and I have come to the Y’s food truck twice a month and it has really benefitted us. It has helped us get our fruits and our vegetables, and it really cuts down on the grocery bill. We’ve shared the truck schedule with many friends. We thank the farmers and the grocery stores that are providing this. We’re just grateful. We’re eating good and staying healthy!” said one of the food recipients.
