St. Patrick Catholic Church Dedicates “Green Machine”

St. Patrick Catholic Church on Sunday held a blessing and dedication for  The Green Machine Mobile Food Market. The market will create access to healthy food for areas of Memphis that don’t have ready access to traditional supermarkets.

The mobile market will begin making stops at 15 area locations June 2, Kenneth Reardon, a professor and director of the graduate program of City and Regional Planning at the University of Memphis, told an audience of community leaders, parishioners and volunteers gathered at St. Patrick.

Reardon also shared the history behind the mobile food market and thanked the many community partners who have helped get the project off the ground.

St. Patrick Parishioners and members of the community await a blessing and dedication for a Memphis Area Transit Authority Bus that has been transformed into a rolling deliverer of healthy foods for the city’s neediest areas.

The Green Machine Mobile Food Market will begin making stops at 15 city locations beginning June 2 to sell fresh, affordable produce supplied by Easy-Way Produce Stores.

Antonio Raciti, a University of Memphis visiting professor in city and regional planning, speaks with a local parishioner on the newly rehabbed bus. Raciti created the overall design and detailed construction plans for transforming the bus into a retail sales environment.
