A great article from CityLab on one company that is attempting to bring healthy, locally made food to economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in the Los Angeles metro. Many neighborhoods are food deserts where residents do not have access to fresh produce. This causes them to make unhealthy choices for their families, whether it is purchasing ready-made food from a convenience store, or a meal from McDonalds or Taco Bell. Interesting concept and business model that will hopefully make it financially feasible for the owners over the long term. If successful, this model could be applied across many major cities in North America that have struggled with providing basic staples to their lower-income families.
