The Mobile Market is a program of Western Communities Action Network (WeCAN). Our mission is to provide a mobile food shelf option to serve the needs of individuals and families in western Hennepin County with barriers to accessing a traditional food shelf. The Mobile Market currently serves about 54 households in two low-income apartment complexes with two deliveries per month. Deliveries include a packed bag of non-perishable food as well as eggs, milk, meat and an assortment of extra items such as bread, fresh fruits and vegetables, personal care items and condiments.
The Mobile Market has partnered with WeCAN’s Meals-On-Wheels program to deliver monthly bags of groceries to Meals-On-Wheels clients. We are thrilled to be able to expand this program and provide more assistance to home-bound individuals who have indicated the need for additional food support.
The Kids Food Program was built to fill a gap in food support for school aged children over major school breaks. The Mobile Market packs bags of food geared towards children, including healthy, energizing food and meals that require minimal preparation.
