CBDNewsBreaks – Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (ACTX) Poised to Provide Access to Healthy Food in Food Deserts

Company: Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (ACTX)
Category: Stock Spotlights

Advanced Container Technologies (OTC: ACTX) is confident its GrowPods – modular hydroponic greenhouses – could become a valuable tool in efforts to combat food insecurity. With GrowPods, the company notes, cultivation can be moved nearer to the point of consumption, allowing food to be harvested at its peak nutritional value. “Micro-farms, such as ACTX’s Grow Pods, are being evaluated as a potential solution for food insecurity. Last year, Virginia State University (‘VSU’) was given a $500,000 grant to explore micro-farms as a potential solution to what the school called ‘food deserts in urban neighborhoods.’ According to the school, the grant will build VSU’s capacity to provide comprehensive education on micro-farming,” a recent article reads. “Leonard Githinji, project director and sustainable and urban agriculture Cooperative Extension specialist at VSU, reports that more than 11% of the nation’s population and 10% of Virginia’s population are food insecure. ‘Residents in food-insecure areas, commonly known as food deserts, have little or no access to fresh, affordable and nutritious food, and often have higher instances of chronic diseases, such as obesity, due to poor diets,’ Githinji states. ‘Developing sustainable micro-farms in urban areas can have a profound impact on access to healthy food in food deserts.’”
