The Mobile Grocer Bus Fund

The Mobile Grocer Bus Fund | Florida Business | Scoop.it
THe Mobile Grocer is ready to acquire and remodel its first bus with your help. Get on the bus with a donation today!
Robert Green's insight:
As you may know, 1 in 6 people in Brevard suffer from food insecurity.  That translates to over 86,000 people having to make tough decisions about where their next meal comes from or even going hungry.  
 
We are in the process of launching a nonprofit startup organization, The Mobile Grocer, to fight food insecurity by bringing the grocery store to the community door.  We are currently seeking local sponsors from business leaders like yourself who are interested in a unique shared marketing experience. 
 
Please consider helping us fund the our first bus and #StartSomeGood by showing your support at http://www.startsomegood.com/MobileGrocerBus.
 
If you would like us to consider your business for a weekly stop, we invite you to contact us for scheduling details.
