I am working with the 20743 Food Justice Coalition, a group of local organizations and residents who do the work of establishing food justice throughout the Greater Capitol Heights area. Our definition of food justice is “affordable, accessible, quality food for all that reflects what the community wants and fosters health and economic growth.” Our goal is to bring a food retailer to the neighborhood that focuses on what the community wants and needs.
As many of you know, there is NO grocery store in the entire 20743 zip code and very few fresh produce options along MD-214 (Central Avenue). The Food Justice Coalition is exploring the concept of establishing a cooperative grocery store in the Capitol Heights area.
We believe a cooperative grocery store would be the best way to accomplish this, but we want to hear from the community first through this survey. Let us know your thoughts, then join the coalition if you want to be a part of the movement!
If you live in Prince George’s, Seat Pleasant, Capitol Heights, Landover, Forestville, District Heights…please take a few moments of your time to complete a survey at the following link – https://cafbmdteamforms.typeform.com/to/QxhUcB
YOU DO NOT NEED TO LIVE IN 20743 TO COMPLETE THE SURVEY! Anyone who lives in Prince George’s County OR in DC Wards 7 and 8 should complete the survey.
