Healthy Food for Denver’s Food Deserts
Some families in Denver take two buses and travel over an hour each way on just to get affordable, healthy food for their family and 49% of Denver’s low-income neighborhoods do not have access to grocery stores. These food deserts unfairly impact kids, seniors, people with disabilities making it harder for struggling families to get by.
In a city with as much development as Denver, there is a better way. Economic development incentives are the best tool for creating local jobs and attracting healthy food retail stores to Denver’s food deserts.
