The Market’s new Food Forward project aims to improve access to the fresh fruits and vegetables and locally produced food at the Capital City Public Market by providing transportation from Whitney Community Center to the Market and allowing new shoppers to take advantage of:
1. direct access to food producers
2. programs that promote healthy eating and living
3. an opportunity to enjoy being part of the community within the Market
The program will run on the first Saturday of each month from June through September during the 2017 market season. The market will be giving out 100 bus passes each month to the community to encourage them to participate in the market, and individual participants of this program will also receive a $10 market voucher which can be spent alongside our EBT match program. The bus schedule is still yet to be determined, but it will pick up and drop off at the Whitney Community Center located at 1609 S Owyhee St, Boise, ID 83705.
