Hey there Priyamvada! I'm sorry but I'm hardy up to speed with such initiatives anymore. I will post it here in case I come across any initiatives of the such. Please, link some of your findings to this thread as well. I'm glad this discussion is still alive, 4 years after the inception of this idea :)
Chris, thats an interesting point there. Even where I live most of the perishable food distribution (i mean fresh veggies) happens way before sun rise - at around 2AM. Thats when the trucks loaded with fresh produce deliver their goods to local vendors. I have seen this happen myself.
