Go Green Middle Tennessee!
The Vanderbilt Veggie Project helps children learn about fresh produce- where it comes from and why it is so important to include fruits and vegetables in your diet.
But these vegetable markets that sell cheap produce "drive through style" have given people an opportunity to eat healthy in areas where fresh fruits and vegetables are hard to come by.
Kyle Craig says, “It is cheap food we are selling it to them what we buy it to the farmers we are not making a profit at all so there is no excuse there as to whether or not to choose this over a hamburger.”
The Veggie Project has sold hundreds of pounds of produce in the last 8 weeks.
This is the last week for the Veggie Project in 2012- the left over items will go towards feeding the homeless and elderly.
