Free Vitamins Offered to Fast-Food Eaters

Food & Drink Health Harajuku

A temporary pop-up shop emerged in Tokyo’s Harajuku district called Fast Food Aid.

What was being given away for free were vitamins to supplement the nutrients people weren’t getting from eating typical fast-food like burgers, pizza, fried chicken and ramen.
