We seek to holistically improve the health of low income areas by opening a full service nonprofit grocery store. It will take a multifaceted approach to deal with poor health, both physical & mental, by offering affordable healthy food, education on healthy food choices and preparation, jobs, job training & scholarships. Access to healthy food shouldn't be a luxury!
- Over 87,000 residents in our area lack access to fresh, healthy affordable food
- 35% of homes with kids across income levels, don’t have daily access to adequate food
- In 2020 over 4K students were homeless, homelessness in Charlotte-Mecklenburg has increased over 55% since June 2020
