Baby Berk Rides to the Rescue

In the fall of 2010, a collaborative project between the University Museum of Contemporary Art, Nuestras Raices Inc. of Holyoke, Holyoke Food and Fitness Policy Council and Joseph Krupczynski (art activist, architect/designer and UMass professor) transformed a traditional mobile food cart into a movable feast of visual and culinary offerings, circulating to locations throughout the campus and community.

This public art project was so popular that UMass Dining and Catering services introduced their own permanent version called Baby Berk (named after the Berkshire Dining Commons). This mobile dinning cart travels to popular campus destinations to serve food closer to the action. This summer that will include the Hadley Farm Equine Center where Summer College students enrolled in Equine Management will have lunch delivered. Four wheels for those riding on four hooves.
