Lack of access to healthy food is linked to an increase in BMI and obesity. In Rochester, NY, 40% of urban children are overweight or obese, compared to only 25% in the suburbs. Risings costs and limited access to healthy food means food inequality is worsening in America. Poor access to healthy food in our cities contributes to poor quality of life and worsens the cycle of poverty.
Oasis Frozen Foods will change that. We will offer low cost, healthy frozen meals to underserved communities. Our unique distribution methods guarantee that the people who need access to healthy foods will have it. We will make it easy for our customers to use EBT (food stamps) to make purchases, and encourage healthy eating for their families through educational programs and community outreach.
