Regarding Adrian Florido’s story about the shortage of fresh produce available to certain areas of San Diego, I saw a story on TV about how they are addressing this program in Chicago. They took a retired city bus and refitted it to be a mobile store. Instead of passenger seating, it had shelving full of fresh vegetables on either side. It made stops in several areas so that it would be easily accessible to foot traffic.
It reminded me very much of the library’s bookmobile or the San Diego Blood Bank’s mobile unit. Maybe something like that could work here.
