Stronger together, fresher together
Jeremy Peaches & Ivy Walls founders of Black Farmer Box, have the amazing opportunity to open a much-needed Grocery store and zone for healthy eating in Food Dessert Community Sunnyside Houston, Texas.
A food desert is an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food.
After a recent University of Houston study was released, finding that lettuce purchased in low-income neighborhoods had higher levels of E.coli and other gastrointestinal bacteria than lettuce purchased in higher-income neighborhoods. Jeremy & Ivy knew they could no longer sit on the sidelines and wait for things to change. After meeting for hours to discuss how they could continue to make a change, the fire to open Fresh Houwse Grocery was ignited.
