FRESH CONNECT

Increasing access to nutritious food is crucial to improving the diets and overall health of our hungry neighbors.

Hunger means more than missing a meal. Vulnerable populations like children and the elderly experience serious issues when they don’t have access to nutritious foods. That’s why Fresh Connect – our free, mobile farmers market – brings healthy options like fresh produce, meat, and dairy to our food-insecure neighbors.

INCREASING ACCESS TO NUTRITIOUS FOOD

Fresh Connect returns to the same three locations in Bucks County each week, providing reliable hunger relief for families and seniors. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we transformed Fresh Connect into an emergency food distribution program to meet our community’s most urgent needs.

The program is a collaboration of United Way of Bucks County, Bucks County Opportunity CouncilSt. Mary Medical Center, Rolling Harvest Food Rescue, and Philabundance. United Way of Bucks County funds Fresh Connect and donations to support the market should be made through UW Bucks.
