Last month, Discovery Triangle unveiled the Food Express mobile produce market to the community and media at Brunson Lee Elementary. The bus will play a vital role in providing underserved communities located throughout the designated metro food desert with high quality produce at affordable prices.
Mayor Stanton and many other community leaders stepped off the bus upon arrival and spoke to the importance of ensuring that all Valley families have the opportunity to conveniently obtain the fresh fruits and vegetables necessary to promote healthier eating choices in their homes. Upon conclusion, the crowd was invited to a sneak peak inside the retrofitted Valley Metro bus and speak one on one with the those that made this rather ambitious dream a reality.
We are extremely honored to not only be fortunate enough to have the ability to supply Fresh Express with all the produce they will be carrying, but to also have the opportunity to work alongside so many fantastic organizations intent on enriching our community.
