Grocery Store Attraction Strategies: A Resource Guide for Community Activists and Local Governments
Research has shown that in many low-income neighborhoods, nutritious food isn’t readily available in local stores—many neighborhoods lack supermarkets and corner stores often tend to stock mostly junk food, liquor, and cigarettes. Grocery Store Attraction Strategies: A Resource Guide for Community Activists and Local Governments provides nuts-and-bolts information to help communities bring in grocery stores, build them, or prod local shops to sell more fresh food. The report, produced with Bay Area Local Support Initiatives Corporation (LISC), details the steps to develop a neighborhood strategy, marshal broad support, finance a project, and approach grocery retailers.
