About Fresh Truck
We love Boston and we’ve been committed to making it a healthier city since 2013. It all started while Josh was working as a health educator at the MGH Charlestown Healthcare Center. He kept hearing from his families that it was difficult to shop for healthy food — at that time, the only grocery store in the neighborhood was set to be shut down for a year-long renovation. It was this experience and some in-depth research that inspired Fresh truck to rethink the traditional grocery store model, make it mobile and bring it to the people that need it the most. Since our launch in 2013, we have sold more than $200,000 of fresh food, cultivated a citywide network of community health partners, and our neighborhoods have embraced us warmly. We’re hearing the stories of kids trying their first sweet potato and families preparing meals together. We have a big vision for the future of food and healthcare, and we are only just getting started.
