AgeSpan to launch its first Mobile Food Market in Lawrence
July 28, 2022

The market is a collaboration with The Greater Boston Food Bank and Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence

This summer, people of all ages will be able to choose from a wide variety of produce and other foods at the new AgeSpan Mobile Market in Lawrence.

AgeSpan partnered with The Greater Boston Food Bank to launch its first mobile market to be held every month starting August 16 at the Boys & Girls Club at 136 Water Street, Lawrence.

“We are so grateful to the Boys & Girls Club for partnering with us to bring this new initiative to Lawrence,” says AgeSpan CEO Joan Hatem-Roy. “This is a great way for individuals and families to have regular access to high quality, nutritious food from The Greater Boston Food Bank.”

The Mobile Market is set up in a farmer’s market style to allow people to choose from a diverse selection of fresh produce, non-perishable items, and other foods. The market will be outside during the summer and move inside during the winter months.

The AgeSpan Mobile Market is open to Merrimack Valley residents of all ages. Participants should bring their own bag, and items are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Mobile Market is part of AgeSpan’s nutrition and outreach efforts to connect people with healthy foods and community-based organizations.

Volunteers are needed for about three hours each month to set up, help with distribution, and clean up. Flexible scheduling is available. Business and community organizations are welcome to volunteer.

If you are at least 18 and want to volunteer, please contact AgeSpan Program Manager Ruth Ortiz at rortiz@agespan.org or call 978-946-1279.
