OH YEAH! New Toronto bike cart dishes out healthy lunches and snacks

Hurting for healthy lunch options near the office? About to fall prey to the siren call of that Manchu Wok in the PATH yet again? Look for this health food company and their brand-new bike cart to ride in and save the day.

Oats & Ivy hit the road last month, popping up in the Financial District to dole out nutritionist-approved, sustainably-sourced lunches. So far, their menu of from-scratch dishes include nutritious salads (like Mexican bean or beet/arugula) and sweet treats (which are often raw, vegan or paleo). Next week, they’ll roll out cold-pressed juices, smoothies and nut milks.

New Cargo Bikes for Not Far From the Tree

Via Not Far From the Tree‘s Flickr:

“A fleet of 7 new cargo bikes are hitting the streets today for Not Far From The Tree to distribute fresh fruit picked from Toronto’s trees.”

About Not Far From the Tree:

Not Far From The Tree puts Toronto’s fruit to good use by picking and sharing the bounty.

When a homeowner can’t keep up with the abundant harvest produced by their tree, they let us know and we mobilize our volunteers to pick the bounty. The harvest is split three ways: 1/3 is offered to the tree owner, 1/3 is shared among the volunteers, and 1/3 is delivered by bicycle to be donated to food banks, shelters, and community kitchens in the neighbourhood so that we’re putting this existing source of fresh fruit to good use. It’s a win-win-win situation!

This simple act has profound impact. With an incredible crew of volunteers, we’re making good use of healthy food, addressing climate change with hands-on community action, and building community by sharing the urban abundance.
