      might want a local minder to accompany you ....  LOL

      But yes, I do envision a "fruit and vegetable" stand contained within a truck.

      Inexpensive.  SNAP food stamps accepted.  Only fresh veggies and fruits, in-season.  Dependable, so meals can be planned. To the local apt building lot, so old folks can walk out and access without taking a bus, carrying heavy package, etc.

        But I get your point.

        I'm thinking of what I could make if I bought a wagon and a 40# case of fruit from the warehouse.

          now I'd source local producers for 2 x a week delivery, get an old donated truck, and go to a specific location in a needy area to sell for 2-3 hours.  

          I gotta do this.  We're killing ourselves eating American.  Humans were not meant to eat this crap we create.
