Hartford Food System

Vision: Hartford Food System engages in a system-based approach that focuses on the root causes of food system issues— recognizing the importance of emergency food activities, and the importance of long term answers to issues of food sovereignty.

Impact: The Hartford Mobile Market, a part of the Hartford Food System, aims to address the lack of access to affordable and high-quality produce across Hartford. The year-round mobile market is targeted to low-income neighborhoods in and around Hartford. The Mobile Market’s produce is grown at the Hartford Urban farm.
