Since Whole Foods hasn't yet set their sights on opening a branch there, well ... this could be the next best thing! Universal Hub reports that BRACE, whose directors include Boston-area architects, planners and engineers, wants to raise $7,743 to build a "pedal-powered veggie delivery system" to bring heathy food to impoverished areas.

The project is in conjunction with the Mattapan Food and Fitness Coalition (MFFC) and Brookwood Community Farm, which raises organic fruits and vegetables on farms in Canton and Milton.

Think it could work? We sure hope so. You can help by contributing right here, and you'll even get a snazzy tote bag, poster, or postcard. Eat those tasty veggies (yes, even broccoli!)!
