You may recall the Food Justice Truck, a new project of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Melbourne. Last year they set a new StartSomeGood-record by raising $153,000 to set up a social enterprise which will sell locally-grown and organic produce to the good people of Melbourne while offering a 75% discount to asylum seekers.
We watched with excitement earlier this year as they bought a truck and started renovating it into a stylish mobile market.
And now we’re so proud and thrilled to say that the truck is fully operational and has hit the streets to make life easier for local asylum seekers while giving everyone access to great local produce.
Doesn’t it look amazing?
Congratulations to the whole team involved!
