Meet Lesley, Arlington Charities Mobile Market Truck Client …

Lesley is a single mom with a three-year-old son named Caiden. The Mobile Market Truck comes to her apartment complex once a month and provides fresh produce, meat, bread, and dairy.
“I love shopping at the Mobile Market Truck. There’s always a variety of produce, and I especially love it when there are eggs!”
Lesley lives on a strict budget and is thankful for how the Mobile Market Truck has helped her save.
“I still shop at the normal grocery store, but the Mobile Market Truck has helped tremendously,” she said. Everything is going up except your paycheck.”
Lesley loves bringing her son to shop at the Mobile Market Truck.
“The volunteers are so nice, and they always have a special treat for Caiden.”
