A Partnership to Provide Fresh Produce to Indy’s Transit Community 

INDIANAPOLIS — On Thursday, June 13, at 1 p.m., IndyGo, the City of Indianapolis and Growing Places Indy will announce the launch of their seventh consecutive Food in Transit initiative. This engaging outreach series aims to expand access to food for Indianapolis residents by bringing fresh, healthy and locally grown produce to the Julia M. Carson Transit Center, located at 201 E. Washington St., on Thursdays from 2 to 5 p.m., during peak ridership hours.

Participants can look forward to engaging cooking demonstrations, free prepackaged items, fresh produce, and recipes on the second and fourth Thursday from June 13 to September 29. Food in Transit is designed to inspire healthy eating habits and increase community access to food. The collaboration is made possible by $15,000 in federal funding from the City of Indianapolis’ Department of Metropolitan Development (DMD).


In a commitment to inclusivity, all produce will be free, allowing community members to access these healthy food options, regardless of economic status.
