Twenty Million Americans Don't have Grocery Service.
They are in what we call a Food Desert, A food desert is an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food, in contrast with an area with higher access to supermarkets or vegetable shops with fresh foods, which is called a food oasis.
We are partnering with the finest Robotic technology manufacturers and building one of the biggest networks to serve these great market niche.
Tokensfood project is a network of distributors all over the country and close to certain underserved markets to provide the service, establishment, and operation of a “hub and spoke” logistics system where 1 unit can support 8 to 10 sister stores located within a two-hour drive of the hub store. The other involves putting together a network of third-party outlets – convenience stores, drugstores, etc., that are ready to install lockers on behalf of a food retailer.
Each Hyper-local Micro Fulfilment Center will bear the name of your favorite local hero.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines a food desert as an area that has either a poverty rate greater than or equal to 20% or a median family income not exceeding 80% of the median family income in urban areas, or 80% of the statewide median family income in nonurban areas.
In order to qualify as a food desert, an area must also meet certain other criteria. In urban areas, at least 500 people, or 33% of the population must live more than 1 mile from the nearest large grocery store. In rural areas, at least 500 people, or 33% of the population must live more than 10 miles from the nearest large grocery store.
The USDA identified around 6,500 food deserts between 2000 and 2006. Experts estimate that around 23.5 million people in the U.S. live in low-income areas that are farther than 1 mile to the nearest large grocery store. Of these people, 11.5 million have low incomes. According to information from medical news today.
