Millvale is one of many communities that are classified as food deserts. These are areas where there are no grocery stores in close proximity, making it difficult for people who do not have access to a vehicle to get food.

The Green Grocer is a mobile food cart that visits numerous areas throughout Pittsburgh weekly, bringing the food to the the residents. Millvale is visited every Tuesday between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. so people have access to fresh food.

Customers can use cash, credit cards or supplemental assistance to make purchases. It’s like having a mobile farm market and is something Millvale residents desperately need.
