Tech firm teams with lawmakers to tackle food insecurity in St. Petersburg

    April 20, 2021 - BlockSpaces, a Tampa-based tech company, has teamed up with Florida House members Ben Diamond and Jackie Toledo to file Florida House Bill 4119:

    Food Equity & Racial Disparities in Food Supply Chain Blockchain Pilot: St. Petersburg. The University of South Florida’s Center for the Advancement of Food Security & Healthy Communities also contributed to the bill. If signed into law, the measure would create a community-based pilot program that would, in part, connect producer members of the Florida Black Farmers and Agriculturalists Association with citizens and minority-owned food-related businesses in a USDA-designated food desert in South St. Petersburg. The pilot program, according to a news release, would also be Florida’s first state-funded blockchain project.
