The Golden State Warriors and Kaiser Permanente have partnered with local farmers market vendors to launch Thrive City Farmers Market on Wheels, a mobile program aimed to deliver essential grocery items and resources to Bay Area communities in need. Thrive City Farmers Market on Wheels will temporarily replace the Sunday Farmers Market held in Thrive City, a community gathering place for healthy resources and shopping options that will resume once it is deemed safe amid the pandemic.
Beginning this week, Thrive City Farmers Market producers Clara’s Egg Farm, Ground Stew Farms, Jacob’s Farm and Smith Farms will supply fresh produce and healthy grocery items that will be delivered to the Curry Senior Center and the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) using vehicles provided courtesy of the Golden State Warriors and Chase Center partner Mercedes-Benz.
In May, the Warriors announced the organization’s larger COVID-19 Impact Strategy, which includes four main categories of community aid: supporting Chase Center and the Golden State Warriors part-time and gameday workers, supporting healthcare and front-line workers, supporting communities in need, and supporting education, teachers and students in need.
