An Oasis in a Food Desert


Abstract:
The TROSA Grocery has opened in East Durham. The nonprofit is part of a regional effort to provide low-income communities access to affordable healthy food. Before TROSA Grocery opened nearest grocery store had been two miles away making the only food available the kinds that are sold in convenience stores. The grocery store will help make shopping more convenient and especially help the elderly and those trying to eat healthy foods.
