Movable Feast

Movable Feast is a socially engaged art and food project to promote “Food System Change,” and a literal and metaphoric vehicle that advocates for building a healthier regional food system. The project provides a visual and culinary catalyst for discussing, highlighting and disseminating information about healthy community-based food practices in Western Massachusetts’ diverse communities. The retrofitted mobile food service trailer at the center of this project is an advocacy tool for healthy eating, local food production and sustainability.
