Food insecurity has been a long-standing problem in remote areas such as island nations and northern communities. In these food deserts, fresh produce must be transported long distances resulting in high costs and contributing to poor nutrition.
A food desert is an area that has limited access to affordable fresh and nutritious food, such as fruits and vegetables.
Hybrid Farms can provide fresh produce year-round, at a lower cost than shipping foods from more favorable locations.
