“When they [Healthy Corner Store Initiative coalition members, Councilmen Wyatt] came to us and asked if we would provide more fruits and vegetables, we were open to this idea and wanted this to succeed so we could help the neighborhood. Many people in the neighborhood don’t have cars to go supermarkets outside of the community. So, we are trying to bring as much produce as we can into this store.”
