Abstract (Summary)

The food industry has experienced changes in the past several years that include the awareness of food choices. Recently, national advertising campaigns have focused on efforts to increase the public awareness of healthy food choices and calorie intake. The healthy food choice campaigns may prove to be effective with a specific population. However, research studies revealed that residents living in disadvantaged areas lacked the income and/or transportation to access the healthy food options.

The intent of the Livin’ the Food Life, LLC organic mobile market/café is to introduce and provide hot prepared, organic foods and fresh organic produce at affordable prices to the low-income children and their families. Livin’ the Food Life, LLC organic mobile market/café will increase awareness through monthly food demonstrations and the distribution of samples to educate the low-income residents of East and South Los Angeles with the benefits of cooking and consuming organics food products.
