Across the street from a giant grocery store in North Philly, one man sells cheap bags of produce to residents

Perhaps Fresh Grocer and Aleksandr Faynberg are competitors, but for those who live near Broad and Jefferson streets, they both fill an essential need.

Lee added that the truck is easier to navigate than the Fresh Grocer, which sits one block over at Broad and Oxford streets and is often crowded. Cheaper prices at the truck may be another draw for North Philadelphia residents, who Faynberg said are the majority of his customers.

    In North Philly, a produce truck and a supermarket are fighting food insecurity - Generocity Philly
    On maps detailing food insecurity in the city, North Philadelphia has long been marked as an area to be concerned about. But, as more studies and reports of hunger in the neighborhood surface, a produce truck on Broad and Jefferson streets quietly sells produce for about $1 to $2 a bag - and has been for nearly 25 years.

Temple promised the community a job training facility on North Broad. Three years later, it's still not there.

Four years after Temple University bought a plot of land at North Broad near Master Street, the North Philly school is finally making moves on the job training facility it promised to help build there.
