Fresh produce at the RDV

RDV Sportsplex supports access to fresh produce in food desert communities by hosting The Fresh Stop Bus, a mobile farmers market, in the RDV Sportsplex parking lot, Monday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon. The Fresh Stop Bus is a local non-profit reliant on grants and charitable funding in order to visit a dozen neighborhoods each month providing access to fresh fruits and vegetables. With more than 1 million visitors annually, RDV Sportsplex is helping to generate much needed revenue to help support this access to fresh produce in local communities, bringing hope and better nutrition to some of the areas hardest hit by generational poverty.
