Food Desert & Grocery Buzz
Some talk about grocery stores buzzing around the social media space in Detroit this week got me to thinking about urban food security is such a hot topic, but it seems like we tend to ignore some of the severe issues with food access in rural areas.
Thanks Center for Rural Affairs for reminding me of the bigger picture in your oh-so-awesome newsletter. This article was especially interesting. Appreciated the commentary on grocery stores as “more” than just food access points and especially love the example of the high schoolers starting a grocery.
May be meeting with the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation’s Green Grocer project folks soon to talk about how they can tie into the conference I’m working on organizing around local and regional food distribution. Very much looking forward to hearing their take on the recent buzz in the blogggggggosphere.
