Stockbox’s grand vision is to have stores located in urban deserts so that residents have somewhere within walking or biking distance to buy fresh food. There’s no need to build a giant grocery store – a mini market can easily meet the demands of a dense community. Stockbox hopes to build these markets out of converted shipping containers and place them in parking lots of partnering organizations. “Our goal is to bring food back to communities, and focus on communities that don’t currently have good access to food and are heavily dependent on public transportation,” says founder and owner Carrie Ferrence.
