The Mobile Grocery Store comes to Edmonton as a younger sibling to the Grocery Run, a project initiated by CUP researchers in partnership with the Multicultural Health Brokers Cooperative (MCHB) and other local organizations, which since 2016 has been providing both perishable and non-perishable food items to families assisted through the program.

Where: Clareview Community Recreation Centre (pop-up stand located inside)

When: Every Wednesday @ 6:30 - 8:00 PM

Additional locations throughout the city are in the works for the coming weeks, as the project aims to reach as many communities as possible, providing access to healthy and affordable food that, at the same time, contributes to reducing waste and its impact on the environment.

The Fresh Routes Mobile Grocery Store has the support of Extension's Community-University Partnership (CUP), the City of Edmonton, the Multicultural Health Brokers Cooperative, the Edmonton Community Development Company, Communities United, and the Edmonton Community Foundation.

The launch of the mobile grocery store was recently covered by CTV News and Global News
