Attention, Whole Foods shoppers, five percent of net sales on Tuesday, August 21st, will go to Memphis Mobile Market, a new nonprofit founded by UT medical students to address the issue of food deserts in the Raleigh and Frayser areas.

To provide access to healthy foods to those communities, a trailer has been converted into a mini store with aisles for displaying produce and some non-perishable items. The plan is to initially have three or four stops on Saturdays and Sundays, and then expand to other days of the week.

If they meet their funding goals, the Memphis Mobile Market will hit the road by late September or early October.
