Fresh Start Farmsメ Mobile Market is in need of volunteers for the 2022 season! The mobile market will be operating from May/June - October in Concord, Manchester, and Nashua. Please consider joining the mobile market team this summer and strengthening food access in our communities.

What is ORIS and Fresh Start Farms?
(ORIS) is an ethnic community-based organization located in southern New Hampshire. Our flagship program is Fresh Start Farms, a sustainable agriculture project that seeks to end food insecurity in southern NH. Our refugee farmer participants grow, sell and promote affordable, nutrient-dense produce.

What is the Mobile Market?
Our Mobile Market Program is a farm stand on wheels that delivers food to the places that need it most. It serves as a link between New Hampshire farmers and the communities with limited access to locally-grown produce and healthy food. Instead of consumers commuting to the farm, farmerメs market, or even a grocery store, the mobile market travels directly into communities to make food more accessible and affordable.

Am I a Good Fit for this Volunteer Opportunity?
If you enjoy being outside, creating an organized and welcoming environment, and being kind and helpful to customers, supporting the operation of the mobile market is for you! Your presence will allow for customers to feel welcomed as they shop, and will help the mobile market to operate smoothly.

What Does a Typical Shift Look Like?
- Arriving 15 minutes early to the mobile market site
- Setting up payment tables, signs, and produce displays
- Assisting customers as they shop, refilling produce
- Maintaining safe and clean shopping environment
- Handing out recipe cards and other resources
- Breaking down displays and tables, and packing up produce

Things to note:
- Volunteers are expected to participate in a volunteer orientation and training
- Personal transportation to the sites is required
- A consistent commitment each week or every other week is ideal!
