As someone who grew up stocking shelves in my parents’ stores and later spent years employed by a grocery chain, I have regularly enjoyed access to healthy, affordable food. It is my firm belief that everyone – regardless of geography or socio-economic status – deserves the same. People’s Community Market will empower people to make conscious choices about their food and it represents what I feel is an evolution in local community building. The PCM model allowed me to take an enduring passion for food justice to the next level by channeling it into direct action.
This is a unique opportunity that will have lasting positive effects and I am proud to have chosen it as my first real financial investment.
