Stockbox Grocer

“Food deserts” are low-income neighborhoods lacking access to healthful, affordable food. Across the U.S. a growing number of people live in food deserts, but a new business out of Seattle is attempting to feel this need.

Stockbox Grocers is a miniature market that is tucked inside a reclaimed shipping container and placed into the parking lot of an existing business or organization.

The stores are small and they are designed to offer the essential grocery items and fresh produce communities need to get through the week.
