In 2020, Homefull launched our full-service Mobile Grocery. This innovative 42' truck expands and houses a full-service grocery store that features fresh, healthy produce and quality, staple grocery items such as meat, dairy, household items and cleaning supplies. In partnership with Premier Health, we are able to offer multiple incentive programs to help low-income customers stretch their buying dollar.
2nd Street Market
Homefull proudly operates the SNAP/EBT Exchange Center at the Five Rivers Metroparks 2nd Street Market in Dayton. As a SNAP/EBT Exchange Center, Homefull staff offer customers the opportunity to use their nutrition benefits to shop with a variety of vendors to purchase fresh produce. Homefull also offers shoppers the ability to purchase locally grown vegetables from our own market stand.
The Five Rivers Metroparks 2nd Street market is currently open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Click here to learn more.
Homefull not only grows produce on our Urban Agriculture Farm located just north of Downtown Dayton, but it also partners with other non-profits and neighborhoods to create urban growing spaces. Our produce is sold at farmers' markets throughout our community.
OTHER FOOD PROGRAMS
Homefull is pleased to partner on several food programs designed to help vulnerable populations. For example, we accept SNAP/EBT and Produce Perks at all of our sites.
In partnership with the Ohio Department of Aging and the Area Agency on Aging, PSA 2, Homefull administers the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program for the Agency’s nine-county service area: Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby.
