Purchase/renovation of an existing building into a community grocery, a local produce processing center and a childhood nutrition education center. Developers/operators currently run a food service business and processing center from a smaller, but nearby leased space. We are also being considered for City of Louisville community grocery funding. Business plan, financial projections and qualifications are available.
The creation of a community grocery to serve the food desert of west/south Louisville and a processing center to purchase local farm products to create value-added products. Nutritional education and cooking classes to be provided.
Very few; Dollar General or convenience stores w/ little if any fresh produce. Several additional applicants for the City funding but our application/business plan far superior to others.
