Neighbors in communities may face physical limits to traveling to a grocery store or community garden.

  • Could mobile farmer's markets or community farm shares arrange for deliveries rather than opening up stationary shops?
  • How can I build a neighborhood buyer's collective or community farm share for the neighborhood to deliver groceries directly?


Interesting! I lived in a bit of a food desert in New Orleans. The coworking space there used to organize for CSA boxes to be delivered there for those who worked there and wanted them. It was nice for the coworkers, but probably would have been helpful if we advertised out that they offered that for local residents as well.
