Company Summary

The company will use food trucks as a platform for cross-subsidization of healthy, locally sourced foods. They will sell at a higher price in wealthy areas to subsidize a lower price in poor areas. The social mission is to get this food to urban poor neighborhoods, where obesity and diabetes rates are more than double that of wealthy neighborhoods, at a price that is affordable to the families that live there - with a particular focus on kids.
