What if you found an old bus, ripped out the interior, and turned it into a farmers market on wheels?

You could drive around to each of the 15 food deserts in St. Louis, where there’s limited access to fresh produce, and while you’re at it, give some cooking lessons or hand out nutrition information.

Sound like a good idea?

President Bill Clinton, his daughter Chelsea, comedian Stephen Colbert and an “A-list” of leaders and thinkers are on the campus of Washington University this weekend for the sixth annual Clinton Global Initiative University.

The three-day event aims to bring students ideas and innovations to bear on a range of global problems from public health, to human rights to the environment.
