Since 2017, the goal of the Facebook Community Mobile Market has been to serve affordable food to communities where fresh quality produce is not easily accessible. To help address the issue of food insecurity and lack of access to organic produce during these unprecedented times, we have adapted our service into a drive-thru market for the communities of Belle Haven and East Palo Alto.
This SAFE (Safe Allocation of Food Essentials) program sources organic produce directly from local farmers. We also offer food essentials in our Meal Deal bags, which are sourced from small businesses from our community. These bags are sold at a discounted rate.
Here's how our Market works:
- All orders are encouraged to be placed online previous to arrival or via our call service (650)781-6622 (EBT orders will be processed using our call center.) Providing payment beforehand will minimize risk exposure; our goal is to keep everyone safe.
- Visit www.communitymobilemarketorders.com to place your order.
Drive-Thru & Pick Up on Sunday:
- On Sunday, head to either of our two drive-thru locations:
Menlo Park Library - 413 Ivy Drive - 9:00am-12:00pm
YMCA EPA - 550 Bell St, East Palo Alto, 1:30-2:30pm
Help Keep Everyone Safe:
- Please follow the signs and remain in your car.
- Wear your mask when interacting with our staff.
- Our staff will ask your name and pass your bags in through your window or place them in your trunk.
- All products will be pre-bagged and ready for you when you arrive.
- If you are visiting us on foot, please remember to maintain a 6 foot social distance (and wear your mask) to keep yourself and those around you safe.
