What happens when you put a bunch of local farmers in a school bus? Well not the actual people, but their products? You get a better way to distribute fresh, local food at the corner of Bathurst & York, or in the parking lot of your nearest community centre. You cut out the middle man, resulting in lower prices for you, and more profits for the farmer.
And the great thing is…it’s easy enough. You need a bus, and a list of local famers ready to play. Being a farmer myself, I’ve got the connections. What is missing is the start-up capital to buy a bus and get things rolling. If we wait for our government to fix this supply management mess, our broccoli will be topping $5.00 a bunch come Spring. So, let’s roll up our sleeves and get fixing this food distribution business from the ground up. Who’s in?
