Fresh Produce Sales (Coming Soon)
Growing Food Growing People has seen the grocery gap in play in our community. Recent studies have found that low-income zip codes have 25 percent fewer supermarkets than wealthy neighborhoods. Lack of access to supermarkets that sell high-quality fresh produce and other healthy food forces our community to partake in unhealthy eating habits. The high amount of convenience and liquor stores in the area combined with the lack of transportation to supermarkets contribute to the grocery gap. Our agricultural company is here to make a difference and play a key part in community development and finally closing this gap.
