Jun 1, 2022 Share

(NILES) – The Veggie Van is making its way throughout Berrien County. This mobile farmer’s market will offer free, locally grown, top-quality, healthy fruits and vegetables, and nutrition information from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7 at the Southwest Medical Clinic, located at 2002 S 11th Street in Niles. The event will be held drive-through style and participants should remain in their car to ensure proper social distancing. A total of 100 bags will be available on a first come, first serve basis. 

The goal of the program is to ensure that fruits and vegetables are available to people who otherwise have limited access to fresh produce. The Veggie Van is made possible through the generosity of Spectrum Health and the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids in partnership with Spectrum Health Lakeland and the YMCA of Greater Michiana.
