Converted Mobile Food Market Brings Fresh Produce To Low-Income Neighbourhoods
Finding fresh produce sometimes is hard in certain urban areas. Mobil fresh produce vans are a great addition to the market place. I find this idea amazing and inspiring. Hope you enjoy the following read.
Urban areas are difficult for someone who wants to maintain a fresh diet. The main reason is money: fresh vegetables and fruits are expensive, because the produce has to be shipped and you end up paying for the delivery cost more than for the quality of the product itself. With the Mobile Good Food Market, you can have your fresh veggies and greens without traveling.
Thanks to a collaboration between FoodShare Toronto ,the City of Toronto, and United Way Toronto, an old bus was converted into what is a mobile food market. Everything from broccoli and lettuce, to apples and onions or other fruits and vegetables are available when the bus comes to town, twice per week. The price isn’t that much lower, because they have to take care of the costs involved by the bus, but all in all, the idea behind such a conversion is easy to praise and be impressed by. You can find more details in the video below…
