Fresh Produce for All

New York City places Green Carts around town to provide fresh produce.

Convenience stores and gasoline stations are ubiquitous across America, but fresh, wholesome fruits and vegetables are often a rare find. The New York City Council has decided to change that, finding that low-income neighborhoods have the least access to healthy produce. The council has approved 1,000 mobile food carts in five boroughs where produce resources like markets and grocery shops have been absent for far too long. The Green Carts—the carts’ official title—are 200 strong right now, but will eventually spread and provide 1,000 jobs as well. Green Carts do not yet accept food stamps, and operators are required to stay in designated boroughs and sell only raw fruits and vegetables. Now this is a change we couldn't be happier about.
