CMT and STL Food Policy Coalition to Link Transit and Healthy Foods

By on May 9, 2018

Citizens for Modern Transit will be linking up with the St. Louis Food Policy Coalition this  Spring to talk about access to healthy foods through transit.   The partnership will kick off with a CMT Special Ten Toe Walk linking walking and transit to local, fresh foods.  On May 10, members of the St. Louis Food Policy Coalition will serve as special guest walk leaders to City Greens Market, 4260 Manchester Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110.

“We are excited to help St. Louisans see all the benefits with transit and demonstrating the access link to healthy foods in many of our communities is key.   There are many areas in St. Louis  considered food deserts, and by  utilizing the transit system as a thoroughfare to healthy foods, there is an opportunity to help combat the lack of access and opportunity.  Our first Ten Toe walk with the St. Louis Food Policy Coalition will allow us to demonstrate through an active walk just how to go about accessing healthy foods with transit,” said Kim Cella, CMT Executive Director.
