Common Council OKs new mobile food trailer project

Project's goal to bring fruits, vegetables to low-income neighborhoods

The Madison Common Council gave the thumbs up on Tuesday night to a proposal to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to low-income neighborhoods.

The goal is to bring food to families who otherwise don’t have access to grocery stores. These access issues have left some parts of the city being described as “food deserts.”

To that end, plans for a mobile food trailer are in the works. The refrigerated trailer would be filled with fruits and vegetables and come to six neighborhoods in the city.
