Definition of Veggie Van Study Terms
Community Site: These are the two (2) locations within each partner organization’s service area which will serve as potential hosts for the mobile market program each week. Invited applicants must provide letters of support from two potential community sites at the time of application. Partner organizations will sign a memorandum of understanding with each community site. These 2 sites may become either a market site or a planning site; see below.
Mobile Market Site: Community site where that partner organization agrees to run a mobile market program, following the Veggie Van model for at least one year starting approximately May 2022.
Planning Site: Community site that will engage in a year-long food access planning process. Partner organizations will work with these sites to determine if the Veggie Van model or another program will be best for these sites. After one year, the partner organization and the site can decide if they want to start a mobile produce market.
