Go green carts

(article, Culinate staff)

Two years ago, the city of New York approved a program called Green Carts, which put mobile produce carts on the streets of the city in neighborhoods with limited access to fresh whole foods. 

Two years later, some 400 carts rove around town, mostly in the food deserts of the Bronx. There's even a newly released Green Carts cookbook, featuring recipes from such celebrity chefs as Tom Colicchio.

And the Museum of the City of New York has gotten in on the food-justice action, with a photography exhibit (on display through early July) documenting the carts. Titled '"Moveable the exhibit features the work of five photographers and includes a public discussion on the politics of nutrition on June 22.
