It can be difficult for people looking to live a healthy lifestyle to do so in urban parts of the world. Why is that?
Cost is the biggest reason.
It cost a lot of money to have fresh fruit and vegetables shipped in, which means people are paying for the delivery as well as the product.
However, Mobile Good Food Market wants people to have their fresh fruits and vegetables without the added cost.
An agreement between the City of Toronto, the United Way Toronto and FoodShare Toronto has led to the conversion of an old bus into a mobile food market. This means fruits and vegetables – apples, nectarines, carrots, broccoli and other fruits and vegetables – can be found when the bus arrives in town two times a week.
According to officials, the Mobile Good Food Market will travel around Toronto to sell reasonably priced food in certain neighborhoods identified as the neediest.
The price of the food isn’t that much different from the grocery store since officials need to consider the bus costs.
However, the idea has gotten praise for its innovation and, with an increase in use and popularity, the prices should drop. If you live in an urban area and want fresh fruit and vegetables, the bus idea may be your ticket to getting them.
