Coolville Veggie Van
The Veggie Van is a donation-based farm stand that carries locally-grown fruits and veggies to rural communities in Southeastern Ohio, 10 months out of the year. In 2020, Community Food Initiatives piloted the Veggie Van in Glouster, Ohio; in 2021, Veggie Van has expanded to serve Coolville and Nelsonville weekly, with periodic pop-up markets in other small, rural communities. All unsold produce is distributed to our food pantry partners, and all donations support food purchase and distribution. This model supports our local farmers while also ensuring that fresh, local fruits and veggies are accessible for all. Join us!
