CMFM Project
Community Mobile Food Market

The Community Mobile Food Market (CMFM) is a community-driven grocery store on wheels that increases the availability of healthy and affordable foods in underserved neighbourhoods of Calgary. 

The CMFM is a collaboration between the City of Calgary, the Institute for Community Prosperity, Leftovers, local vendors, and community groups. 

Why Is This Important:

Not everyone has the same chance to be in healthy of access nutritious food. Financial income, Canada’s geography especially in rural and remote communities can challenge access to quality healthy food. In addition to potential financial constraints, weather, access to transportation and time can limit an individual’s ability to access food. Our goal to increase food access is by bringing the food to communities who may face these barriers.

Please visit the Community Mobile Market Calendar directly below to find out where we will be next!

The Project

The Market will have a variety of fresh produce, eggs, bread and some non-perishables. All items are budget friendly – we aim to be under market value, allowing all individuals will have access to healthy food. Some of these items include bananas, apples, berries, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, and almond milk. Items may vary throughout the pilot based on the seasons.

The goals of the CMFM are to:

  • Build upon existing community assets to strengthen community
    • The Market days will highlight other organizations in the community. Quarterly events will be held to increase community engagement.
  • Increase access to affordable healthy products
    • The Market is open to all regardless of financial income. Whether you are missing a vegetable for a soup or need a closer store, we will be serving all members of the community. Our goal is to bring healthy food to the door at a reduced cost and as a result, reduce potential barriers individuals may face.
Volunteering Opportunities

We are looking for volunteers to fill a variety of roles from sorting food to being a volunteer shopper. Volunteer shifts are two hours at either of the following communities: Sunalta, East Village, Forest Lawn, Pineridge, Bridgeland, Shaganappi and Manchester.

What The Community Has To Say

Because of this market, we have been eating like Kings this summer. We are so grateful.

The truck has been VERY beneficial to the neighbourhood. It has brought people from the neighbourhood together, spiritually and socially. I learn something new every time I go!

The truck is helpful with our basic needs of life, and more important it’s financially very good, saving money and getting good quality food.

Thank you so much!!! for bringing the mobile food truck to Bridgeland. I've travelled 40+ minutes one way by transit for more than 8 years to purchase groceries. This is a dream come true.
