Aug 1, 2019 Share

(ST. JOSEPH) – The Veggie Van, a mobile farmer’s market featuring locally grown, top-quality fruits and vegetables, will make stops at two locations in Southwest Michigan offering free healthy foods and nutrition information. A registered dietitian will be on site during the event to host live cooking demonstrations and free tastings.

The first event will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. during National Night Out on Tuesday, August 6 at Dwight P. Mitchell Park, located at 127 Pipestone Street in Benton Harbor. A second event will take place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21 at the YMCA of Southwest Michigan, located at 3665 Hollywood Road in St. Joseph.

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 Southwest Michigan.
