Communities in these areas bear the city's highest rates of obesity, diabetes and other diet related illnesses. In the absence of grocery stores, residents of these communities either travel extensively to buy food or settle for less healthy convenience store and fast food options that are more readily available.Fresh Moves is a platform for providing access to nutritious food and education in areas where it is not available on a local level. Utilizing partnerships with local stakeholders, schools, churches, community organizations, Fresh Moves is able to provide a supportive knowledge infrastructure of health knowledge beyond simply fruits and vegetables. Fresh Moves is a design solution that is transferrable and could easily scale up to encompass a fleet in Chicago, where three buses now serve food deserts. It has since been replicated in other cities and was one of the recipients of a USDA grant to study the impact of mobile market in both urban and rural environments. It uses available resources that exist in any major city, which suggests a public-private partnership of adaptive reuse for direct, local social impact on a scale that has not been fully realized.Since the launch of the first Fresh Moves bus in 2011, over 22,000 unique customers have been served, two more buses have been added to the Chicago fleet, and the organization has won a Chicago Innovation Award and been featured in the Venice Bienniale as part of the US Pavillion ""Spontaneous Interventions"".Project Team: Architecture for Humanity Chicago.
