    Bronzeville Nurse Hoping To Bring More Healthy Food To The Neighborhood Gets $15K City Grant

    GRAND BOULEVARD — Lori Ouding, a pediatric nurse, has been on a mission to build a food hall in Bronzeville for several years, investing $50,000 of her own money to create a space for the community.

Food Matters, planned near the Green Line at 435 E. 43rd Street, envisions a year-round indoor farmer’s market, shared commercial kitchens and a community gathering space all premised around improving nutrition

    Detroit community crowd-funds the only Black-owned grocery store in the city

    “In the 1960s we had up to 20 Black-owned grocery stores,” said Wright. “By 2010 there were two left, and in 2014 the last one closed.” Charles Walker, a former Detroit grocery store owner and manager of the healthy food incentive program Double Up Food Bucks, said the lack of Black-owned stores can be attributed in part to lack of opportunities given to Black workers. “It matters who is getting experience,” Walker said. “Detroiters may become a cashier, or a stock clerk, but won’t always get to learn how to work with vendors or pay the bills.

    Jen Nation: National City nonprofit rises to the occasion

    We can say a lot of things about 2020, and most of them probably aren’t very positive. I’ve spent a great deal of time searching for silver linings amid a year of uncertainty, civil unrest, social injustices and blatant health inequity. However, I’ve discovered it isn’t hard to find things to be thankful for if you look in the right spots.

As an executive director of a nonprofit in National City, one of the hardest-hit communities both from the COVID-19 pandemic

At the same time, he befriended some grandmas who ran a slightly clandestine restaurant in a decidedly sketchy neighborhood. “The grandmas worked in a small spot with four tables and no sign in front,” he explained. “They became known as making the best Roman food in Italy.”   And what, exactly, makes food “Roman”?
