Transit and Healthy Foods, a Special Ten Toe Express® Walk

Transit and Healthy Foods  – Linking your own ten toes and transit to local, fresh foods.

Join the Ten Toe Express® for a special fall walk, exploring healthy foods and where to find them.  For this special walk we will be visiting the Fair Shares CCSA (Combined Community Supported Agriculture). The tour will include a light sampling of some of their locally sourced products and offer walkers the opportunity to purchase from their exclusive collection. Walkers are encouraged to bring their own shopping bags to take home their tasty treasures. Fair Shares CCSA has created a local food loop that connects farmers, small producers and the St. Louis community they feed.

This walk is co-hosted with special guests from the St. Louis Food Policy Coalition (STLFPC). Making the link between transit and healthy food options in STL: The STLFPC is a group of organizations/individuals led by the Missouri Coalition for the Environment (MCE). The STLFPC is working to promote community markets that provide fresh produce to neighborhoods while supporting local, environmentally-responsible farmers.
