If you read my previous post about Exploring Nutrition then you know that La Salle was in a food desert before Fresh Grocer was built. I took the time to try and talk to some of the people living in the neighborhood about how they felt about the Fresh Grocer. My goal was to get at least three people to let me interview them, but unfortunately only one person allowed me to record some of her answers. This can be found here: Exploring Nutrition Interview
The general consensus in the neighborhood, whether they lived here for 12 years or two was that they liked having a grocery store so close to home. The people of the neighborhood also believed that the grocery store really improved the community.
Note: I wish I was able to have more people for you to listen to so you could hear their perspective, but many people did not want to be recorded and didn’t have the time to be interviewed. Also, no one wanted to have their picture taken.
