The Good Food Bus holds markets at a diverse array of business and neighborhood stops. Business stops, such as Androscoggin Home Healthcare & Hospice and Bath Iron Works, occur at local businesses that are interesting in our market as a perk for their staff. Neighborhood stops, such as the Center for Wisdom’s Women and the Webb's Market, take place at community centers, parks, corner stores, and housing complexes. Both are vital in the sustainability of our model.
Business stops typically come with a direct point of contact and advocate on the ground that help with marketing, communication, and promotion of our project. At neighborhood stops, more of a concerted effort has to be made to either find a proponent to advocate for us within their neighborhood or we have to bare this crucial responsibility.
The Good Food Bus makes purchasing good food easy for all. We accept cash, credit, debit, and SNAP/EBT at every stop, and increase the purchasing power of SNAP/EBT benefits through the Maine Harvest Bucks program which allow customers to bring home more fresh fruits and vegetables.
