ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

An organization that promotes healthier diets in urban areas is taking its efforts to the streets in a new way.

Urban Harvest has promoted rooftop gardening in St. Louis City as a way to get more fresh veggies to people in areas without markets.

The group has used a converted bus to make a mobile market too and now it will take another step to get vegetables to people by bike.

Beginning in mid-May, the Veggie Bike will give away free produce on Saturdays while the St. Louis Metromarket is parked nearby.
