Our Impact

HCSI has worked since 2014 to expand access to quality foods and to provide access equity to our community.

Our impact is made by cultivating partnerships, providing access via our mobile and micro grocery stores, connecting with our neighbors through community outreach, and advocating for policy change to support healthy communities.

In 2018, we served 17,700 people through our mobile and micro grocery stores. We were able to provide our customers with $45,000 worth of free fresh fruits and vegetables, thus impacting their health and eating habits.

Our Programs

Our programming tackles issues all across the food supply chain. From the farm, to distribution, to retail access, and finally food reclamation, our solutions work to address the barriers that produce a system whose end product is inaccessible for so many.

Good food is a necessity for personal, and community health.

 

Mobile Grocery Store

A mobile solution to food deserts. R&G Mobile Grocer is a 44 ft long enclosed trailer turned one aisle grocery store. Through our 14 weekly stops, we are able to serve 17,000 people a year. The mobile model allows us the flexibility to deliver access where it is most needed to increase our impact in the community. Want to visit our store? Click below to view our weekly schedule.


 

Nutrition

Micro Grocery Stores

Micro Grocery Stores are small and mighty. With less than 500 sq ft, our micro markets offer over 1000 grocery products and act as oases providing sustainable food access to the communities that they serve.


 

 

Food reclamation

Recovering food waste to feed people, livestock, and the soil.
