NYC Green Carts are mobile fruit and vegetable stands initiated by the Mayor’s Fund for New York City, the New York City Department of Health, and theLaurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund. These independently operated carts bring fresh fruit and vegetables to underserved New York City neighborhoods across all five boroughs. In the fight against obesity, diabetes, and other diet-related health problems, the Green Carts offer New Yorkers more options for buying nutritious food, while simultaneously creating about a thousand new business and job opportunities. Aperture and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund have commissioned five emerging photographers: LaToya Ruby Frazier, Thomas Holton, Gabriele Stabile, Will Steacy, and Shen Wei to chronicle this remarkable program.
