Seacoast Mobile Market: Whittier Falls Apartments
August 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
SAMM, the Seacoast Area Mobile Market, is the first mobile market program of its kind in New Hampshire, and is the newest program in a larger Mobile Market consortium that spans New England and is generously funded by the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation’s Healthy Food Fund.
The goal of SAMM is to provide access to local foods in communities within the service region that may lack farmers’ markets of their own, have high concentrations of low-income or at-risk residents, are designated as being at higher risk for food insecurity, or have a reportedly high number of residents with lack of access to consistent means of transportation. In addition to these community stops, SAMM will also service a small number of employers in the region as an employee benefit.
Aligning with Seacoast Eat Local’s goal to provide greater access to local foods in all of their Seacoast communities, SAMM is also aimed at spreading and increasing the number of sustainable agricultural businesses in these areas. By sourcing product as locally to market stops as possible, they hope to incentivize and support small scale agricultural businesses in their growth.
