Thanks to the efforts of two church communities, new nonprofit grocery store opens in Raleigh, NC, with the aim of bringing fresh food to working poor.
"A new, small grocery store will offer fresh, affordable produce and other healthy foods in an area of Southeast Raleigh with few convenient grocery options. The Galley Grocery Store, a project that brings together two local churches, opened recently at 402 Bragg St., just south of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The 900-square-foot store is painted a cheerful yellow, and its shelves are stocked with fruits and vegetables, dairy and pantry staples, including canned goods and baking supplies." -- Sarah Barr, the Charlotte News and Observer
