Description

On this week’s Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, brings you the full July 30th press conference held by the Louisville Association for Community Economics (LACE) to update everyone about the progress in launching a cooperatively owned Louisville Community Grocery in one of our core urban neighborhoods plagued by grocery closures and lack of access to fresh, healthy, local food. The need and process for becoming co-owners of the Louisville Community Grocery is discussed, by a variety of LACE members and co-owners of the Grocery, including Cassia Herron (Chair, LACE Board); Jeana Dunlap (LCG Board); Lilias Petit-Scott (LCG owner); Shauntrice Martin (LCG owner, Dir. of Feed The West); Minda Honey (LCG owner); Delores Butler (LCG Board); Kelsey Voit (LCG Board) & Amanda Fuller (LCG Board); Doug Lowry (LCG Board).

Tune in for a full update on their work to open a cooperative community grocery store in West or Old Louisville - including the need for funding communities in West Louisville experiencing food insecurity at rates disproportionate to areas of East Louisville. Many residents in Louisville’s West End live more than half a mile from a supermarket and do not have access to a vehicle. With the uprisings of the murders of Breonna Taylor and David McActee, and the only Kroger in the West End shut its doors to residents, community members ensured there was access to food, such as the Feed the West initiative.
