In an ideal world we would all grow our own vegetables on plots of earth, and eat fresh whole foods prepared from scratch every day. But for many Americans, the reality is that there are great barriers to getting fresh, whole foods onto the dinner table each night. One of these barriers is food deserts, areas of the country where it is difficult to buy affordable, fresh, high-quality food. In fact, nearly 30 million Americans live in these food deserts (source). For example, maybe the nearest grocery store is 10 miles away and your family doesn’t have a car or money for gas, but there’s a convenience store that sells fast food and snacks on your block. You might have food to eat, but you don’t have any healthy or fresh choices.
Naked Juice is partnering with Wholesome Wave to provide fresh produce where there is none – through the #DrinkGoodDoGood campaign. They’ve asked me to use my platform to help spread the word since every time the #DrinkGoodDoGood hashtag is used on social media along with a fruit and veggie selfie, Naked Juice will donate 10 pounds of produce to communities in need. And to kick things off, they’re donating a 250,000-pound contribution.
Me and my herbs (and a green caterpillar hidden in the mix!)
