Food as Medicine: Free Monthly Mobile Produce Market
Lynn Community Health Center has entered into a partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to our community through a free monthly produce distribution.
What do we need?
- Over 400 families come to each market!
- We need about 25 – 30 volunteers each month to distribute the food!
- Volunteers arrive 1 hour before the market opens to help set up for a three-hour commitment: 8:00-9:00 Setup, 9:00-10:00 Market is open. 10:00-11:00 Cleanup
- This is a great opportunity for families to volunteer together, but children under 16 should come with an adult.
When and Where?
Typically* the 1st Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. at Phoenix Food Hub at 8 Silsbee Street Lynn, MA 01901.
*When the first Saturday falls on a holiday weekend, the Market will be rescheduled for later in the month.
