We want to open our first location in a High Food Insecurity Risk Area.
What are High Food Inseurity Risk Areas?
High Food Insecurity Risk Areas are based on the following criteria:
a drive time in excess of 5 minutes to a fullservice store, a drive time in excess of 5 minutes to a store that sells fresh produce (fruits & vegetables), and a limited total offering of food stores for any type of food purchase.
In 2015, more than 87,000 Charlotte-Mecklenburg residents were identified as living in High Food Insecurity Risk Areas.
