What is a Mobile Produce Pantry (MPP)?
Our Mobile Produce Pantry (MPP) is a 6’6’12 utility trailer fitted
with an A/C unit, a CoolBot, and ample storage for fresh fruits
and vegetables! Using a pickup truck, we can then transport fresh produce to different locations throughout the RVA to increase food security in Richmond and the community's access to nutrient-rich foods!
the MPP go?
ANYWHERE in Central RVA! The MPP has the capacity to store, distribute, and provide a space to demonstrate food prep ideas
on how to prepare healthy produce in new and innovative ways.
We can support: Existing Food Pantries | Farmers Markets | Organizations with Healthy Eating Programs | Cultural Cooking Exchange Programs | Skills Training Programs
How does the
MPP differ from other pantries?
We are mobile and specialize in produce. Most food pantries
in Richmond lack the ability to store and distribute produce to the community. Our pantry is on wheels so we can travel to a variety
of existing pantries that lack the infrastructure and increase their ability to include fresh produce in their distribution.
food can the MPP distribute?
1500lbs! For reference, because of our partnership with Feed More, 1,500lbs can be purchased with a $50 gift!
Where is the producing coming from?
We are a part of the Feedmore Agency Network! While Feedmore has historically only worked
with brick-and-mortar food pantries, our exciting new relationship allows World U.P. to source
fresh and healthy produce at a fraction of the retail cost, and allow Feedmore to provide additional service options to their existing food pantries so that they may expand their distribution options!!
We are always looking for new food sources - so if you know a grocery store or farm looking
for a way to get food into the community, please contact us!
