Organizers say a series of equipment problems has caused the temporary closure of Freshmobile.
Freshmobile is a mobile grocery store that brings fresh produce to low-income areas in Madison 6 days a week.
“It takes a lot to keep all of our fresh food items refrigerated on the truck,” Jeff Maurer, owner of Freshmobile and Fresh Madison Market, is quoted in a news release. “The hot weather we had recently was just too much for the equipment to handle, and unfortunately that means we won’t be able to serve our customers for the time being.”
