Video: Why One Farmer Brings Farm-Fresh Food to Urban Food Deserts
This post is brought to you by Naked Juice
At Gama Farms, Gerardo Gama works hands-on to plant and harvest his crops of fresh fruit and vegetables. A fixture at farmers’ markets, Gama brings his freshly harvested produce into urban communities where, in many low-income areas, there are no other unprocessed food options within reach. For these food desert communities, supermarkets are miles away and corner liquor stores are the only source of fresh food. A strong believer that everyone should have access to healthy vegetables and fruit, Gama provides residents a direct line to fresher and more affordable food. Watch the video to learn more about how farmers’ markets can make a difference in low access communities.
