My Mobile Market – Healthy Food Access in Appalachia

The Central Appalachian Network (CAN) and its partners have been working to improve access to healthy food for individuals and families in the Central Appalachian region through local initiatives in their communities. Over the past year, six of these healthy food access initiatives have been published as case studies through a partnership between CAN and the Appalachia Funders Network. CAN worked with Alexandria Polanosky, a visual storyteller, to create short videos highlighting the majority of the healthy food access case study. The summary video for all the healthy food access case studies can be found here.


The second of these healthy food access case studies is My Mobile Market, a program of Williamson Health & Williamson Center and the Williamson Farmers Market. My Mobile Market brings fresh, local produce to communities where options for fresh produce and transportation are limited. Read more about My Mobile Market in the full case study found here.
