Several Gallatin Valley organizations are teaming up to deliver fresh produce to seniors.
MSU's Towne Harvest Garden along with the Gallatin Valley Food Bank and HRDC are making fresh vegetables accessible to seniors.
A grant from the AARP Foundation also helps ensure the veggies are affordable.
Coordinators say places like Belgrade and especially Three Forks don't have the same availability when it comes to fresh produce.
Folks we talked to say without the Community Food Truck, many of them wouldn't have access to fresh vegetables.
"We would have to drive to Manhattan on an evening to get it from the framer's market which, I had determined to do this year but now we have it right here," says Three Forks resident Jeri Milner.
The truck delivers produce that was harvested the same day and you won't find all of these veggies on your grocer's shelf.
"Items that we're bringing are things that they remember from their childhood that you don't see all that often anymore for example, Kohlrabi. There was a generational gap with people my age knowing what Kohlrabi is but when we present it to these folks here at this market, they're very excited to see it because it's something they grew up eating, " says marketing and operations manager Anna Diffenderfer.
Three Forks Mayor Gene Townsend says many of the folks who took advantage of the fresh produce, like Milner, used to have gardens.
"A lot of these people grew up with gardens and so, sometimes age and ability limit them to what they can now plant and grow and so, this gives them still that chance to get them fresh vegetables and stuff that they're used to and have grown up with really," says Townsend.
The Community Food Truck will deliver produce to Three Forks and Belgrade every Tuesday until October 23rd.
