Seven years in the making: Chester, PA, gets a nonprofit grocery store, thanks to the efforts of Philabundance and help from the community.
"In Chester, a city where hard times often plow under shiny promises, a hunger-relief agency's pledge to build America's first nonprofit supermarket was greeted skeptically at first. But Philabundance may be confounding local doubters. Its Fare & Square grocery store, seven years in the making, is ready to open its doors Saturday morning, a rare oasis in what has been called a food desert." -- Alfred Lubrano, the Philadelphia Inquirer
