Citi Open Catering Partner, Occasions, To Launch Drive-Through Mobile Market

Occasions Caterers to Launch Drive-Through Mobile Market This Thursday

The premier catering company is also introducing their "Giving Kitchen" fundraising initiative to help feed underserved communities

During a time when shopping for healthy food can be challenging, Occasions Caterers is launching a convenient, drive-through Mobile Market to ease the stress. Every Tuesday and Thursday, the top-tier catering company will offer local produce, prepared foods, and beverages in various neighborhoods around the city.

Featuring local, farm vegetable and dairy boxes, family-style prepared meals, wine, beer, spirits and fresh cut flowers from LynnVale, the Mobile Market will act as a one-stop shop for your grocery needs. As many farmers markets are closed or face reduced participation, Occasions Caterers’ Mobile Market will help fill the void while supporting a 4P Foods’ small network farms including Lyon Farms, Van Dessel Farm, Lewis Nursery, Valley Farming, Polyface Farm, and Mount Crawford Creamery, and providing individuals and families with safe access to food.

Beginning Thursday, April 16, and then every subsequent Thursday, the mobile market will service Cleveland Park and Woodley Park, Spring Valley, Georgetown and Chevy Chase, Md. On Tuesdays, locations will include Logan Circle and Bloomingdale/Shaw, Park View, and Brookland. All orders must be placed 48 hours prior, and pick-up locations will be drive-through friendly and staffed by gloved and masked attendants to make for no-contact pick-ups.

Vegetable boxes will change with the season and may include asparagus, beets, rainbow carrots, strawberries, Japanese potatoes, butterhead lettuce, baby bok choy, herbs and more. Prices range from $45-$69 depending on size. Dairy boxes will feature local cheeses, eggs, milk, yogurt and more. Updates - including location, items available and more -  will be shared on Occasions Caterers’ instagram account @occasionscaterers and their website

In addition to providing convenient and healthy food to home consumers, Occasions Caterers is proud to launch the “Occasions Giving Kitchen,” a fundraising initiative that feeds underserved and at-risk communities throughout the region. Proceeds from the home meal kits and the Mobile Market will help fund the Giving Kitchen program.
