Residents of Kewa Pueblo in New Mexico don't have to travel too far for fresh produce thanks to an initiative that's bringing healthy food to the reservation. MoGro visits the pueblo two times a week. The mobile store offers fresh produce, dry goods and other foods that aren't always easy to get on the reservation. "Today, they have more access to information than ever, information about the importance of good nutrition for health, but they have no access to the food itself," Rick Schnieders, the owner of MoGro, told The Santa Fe New Mexican. Schnieders started the store after learning about food news on reservations through the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health. Get the Story:
