Fresh Food for All

We love seeing Kickstarter work for great causes. Back in September, Stockbox grocers was successfully funded over their goal. This allowed the founders to create a prototype model of their concept – a small, mobile grocer serving healthy options to residents living in food deserts. Roughly 10% of Americans live in these low-income neighborhoods, with limited access to fresh, healthy food. The prototype was a success, and next month, the first storefront of Stockbox opens in Seattle’s Southpark. The grocer is working with investors to launch 3-5 further stores across the U.S. in 2013.
