The Mobile Good Food Market travels across Toronto selling affordable fresh food in neighborhoods, selected through consultation with local communities and analysis of access gaps.

In the United States, about 23.5 million people live in “food deserts,” geographic areas where access to affordable healthy food options (aka fresh fruits and vegetables) is limited or nonexistent because grocery stores are too far away.  Left to depend on the offerings sold at convenient stores and gas stations, this crisis is partly to blame for the increasing obesity epidemic.  Perhaps the solution is to bring healthy food to the people, similar to what the Mobile Good Food Market is doing in Canada.
