Village Market Corner Store provides healthier and more economical food choices for consumers living in urban communities.
Many people living in public housing don’t own cars. When supermarkets are not within walking distance or easily reached by public transportation, these residents often resort to shopping for their food at gas stations and corner stores. Village Gardens provides jobs, consumer education and nutritious food choices (including fresh produce and prepared foods) for residents in New Columbia.
