The JUST FOOD Initiative - The Story
Mason Square residents, by and large, have challenges meeting basic living needs.
Mason Square literally has no place to go year round to purchase quality, affordable food. It is a "Food Desert." Neighborhood residents, especially those without transportation (which is NOT an insignificant number) are forced to purchase "groceries" from a local CVS. This contributes significantly to the "The Situation."
The Mason Square Food Justice Initiative, along with the Mason Square community at large, is working together to bring in a full service grocery store so that ultimately, Mason Square residents can feed their families high quality, fresh foods.
CALL TO ACTION
Grocery chains want to site their stores where people have money to spend. We want to demonstrate the purchasing power of the Mason Square community in a practical, yet powerfully symbolic way. We're inviting residents in Mason Square and surrounding neighborhoods to save their grocery receipts.
