This new food bus will travel around food-deprived Chicago neighborhoods selling fresh produce

Fresh Moves’ commercial food bus is the first of its kind in Chicago, city officials said.
The  idea was developed by four local residents who decided they couldn’t  wait for large retailers to serve troubled neighborhoods.
Rather  than rely on residents to get to a market, Fresh Moves will deliver  affordable, healthy food to their struggling communities block by block.  And instead of focusing on profit, Fresh Moves’ mission is to address  the social issues that arise in communities where the food selection is  abysmal.
"This is about reaching a vulnerable population," Casey  said. "We are, hopefully, attacking the issue of food access and  unemployment radically different."
