Produce Trucks At Transportation Hubs = Urban Food Solution
There’s been much talk about food access – much of this involves bringing food to the people, like the produce trucks in Baltimore, or locating new food stores in communities that don’t have them, like in Philadelphia. Among the many things I have come to admire during my short stay in Helsinki is the access to fresh food – often located right around transit.
For example, when getting off the train at the main station, residents can buy berries from a portable market set up at the end of the platform. It’s a combination of both approaches – both locating the food near the people, and doing so in a flexible, portable way. Always good to see easy access to produce!
