it seems that Food Justice is looking for a staging area for their fresh foods

saw a story on the local news out of syracuse

a few small stores located in a 'food desert' there were offering fresh fruits

what Food Justice may want to try is to offer their fresh foods to the stores in the 'food desert' in the city of geneva

the stores will only be allowed to charge a reduced fix price on the items

it can either be set up that Food Justice gets half of the proceeds to be used to provide even more fresh foods

or Food Justice can waive any monetary gains and the fixed price would be even lower that the store could charge

the store would see profits, more customers and the customers would get fresh foods

believe that Food Justice needs coolers to keep some of their items fresh

the stores have the refridge/cold display areas to keep the items fresh while being sold to customers

'thinking out of the box'

the city has a few city playgrounds around the 'food desert' area that Food Justice may be able to use as a staging area to distribute their food
