Food IS Medicine | Jeremy Goss | TEDxGatewayArchSalon

Jeremy was taught at a young age that just because he didn't make a mess, that didn't mean he didn't need to help clean it up. Once he saw that food deserts existed in his adopted city he was compelled to do something about it. While he was in medical school he convinced the local transit authority to donate a bus to his cause. He then gutted it and converted it into a traveling green grocery store. That's just the start of the story. Jeremy Goss, MD is the cofounder of St. Louis MetroMarket and founder of the Link Market, two deliciously colorful, nonprofit markets. He’s an advocate for low-income communities on issues related to food justice, hunger and health â€" and he’s got some ideas for your taste buds This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
