Shreveport Green, in collaboration with MS KICK, will host their Monthly Mobile Market at Milam Street
Kitchen Incubator Community Kitchen (MS KICK). The Mobile Market will be held Tuesday April 19, 2022,
from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm with a healthy food demonstration to start at 11:30am. Fresh produce will be
sold on a first-come-first-serve basis and all produce will sell for 50 cents a pound.

The Mobile Market will include a variety of fresh produce such as broccoli, collard, spinach, turnip, mixed
and mustard greens. Fresh herbs such as parsley, oregano, and mint we be for sale as well.

In conjunction with the Mobile Market, MS KICK will host the healthy food demo highlighting one of the
featured fresh produce recipes provided by Shreveport Green’s “Eating from the Garden” Cooking Guide.

The recipe booklet has tons of fresh produce recipes that correlates with what you can grow in the garden
seasonally. Billy Anderson, the Mobile Market Director, says, in regards to the positive impacts of the
Mobile Market, that, “Access to healthy locally grown vegetables is essential in order to fight health issues
in low income neighborhoods. The Mobile Market helps in reducing conditions by selling fresh locally
grown fruits and vegetables at 50 cents a pound and providing for demos in food insecure
neighborhoods.”

MS KICK and Shreveport Green have also collaborated to build the MS KICK Community Garden which is
located adjacent to the building. The Community Garden was created to help address the food disparity
in the Choice Neighborhood Community. With the harvest of the produce from the Community Garden,
MS KICK will be able to help the members of the community create and sustain healthy eating with
gardening skills provided by Shreveport Green, Healthy Cooking Classes with the Tenants of MS KICK, and
potluck-style farm-to-table events with the entire community.

MS KICK is located at 1210 Milam St. in Shreveport. For more information, contact Monique Armand,
Interim Executive Director at 318-670-9780, email MSKick@SUSLA.edu, or visit our website at
