TTC subway commuters now have healthier, local food options, thanks to FoodShare. Over the years, the Toronto organization has spearheaded dozens of innovative food initiatives. The latest - Grab Some Good - involves pop-up produce shops in three subway stations. Since the launch in March 2016, the shops have sold more than 30,000 pounds of fresh, affordable fruit, vegetables and healthy snacks. It's a model that could easily be expanded across Toronto and beyond. By putting the emphasis on local produce, Grab Some Good is supporting Ontario farmers, reducing food miles and making good food choices easy for commuters to pick up on the way to or from work.
