I describe myself as a veggie-obsessed group fitness instructor. Yes, I’ve build veggies into my personal identity. Which is why I’m so excited to team up with naked juice to help raise awareness about ‘food deserts’.
Nearly 30 million Americans have limited access to fruits and veggies*. Just stop for a minute and let that sink in. What fresh produce have you consumed today? If you’re fortunate like me, you didn’t have to think twice about the fresh lemon and ginger you sliced into your morning tea or that apple you grabbed on your way to the grocery store to build an overflowing bowl of greens off the salad bar.
Something as simple as grabbing a salad from the local grocery store salad bar isn’t an option for those living in food deserts — urban neighborhoods that lack resources for fresh produce and natural foods. A crisis affecting nearly one out of every 10 people in neighborhoods across the country.
Naked Juice is kicking off the campaign with a 250,000-pound contribution and asking you to get involved as well!
