About the Grow Mobile

Grow Mobile is a new program launched with a “seed grant” from the American Public Health Association, AETNA Insurance, and the Association of Counties. The “Grow Mobile” will deliver fresh healthy foods into the food deserts of DeKalb County. This is a joint program with VAC, DeKalb County Health Department, the DeKalb County Community Action Office, NIU, and Kish Health. Eventually the program will be expanded to be a traveling health oasis delivering a range of health related services and information.
