Greetings Friends, Family, Buds, & Doers,
Jeremy Peaches & Ivy Walls founders of Black Farmer Box, have the amazing opportunity to open a much-needed and deserved Grocery store and zone for healthy eating in Food Dessert Community Sunnyside Houston, Texas.
A food desert is an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food. After a recent University of Houston study was released, finding that lettuce purchased in low-income neighborhoods had higher levels of E.coli and other gastrointestinal bacteria than lettuce purchased in higher-income neighborhoods. Jeremy & Ivy knew they could no longer sit on the sidelines and wait for things to change. After meeting for hours to discuss how we could continue to make a change, the fire to open Fresh Houwse Grocery was ignited.
Fresh Houwse Grocery is the opportunity for Jeremy & Ivy to create a stable grocery location to provide access to freshness from the farm into the heart of the neighborhood. We have been saving our profits from every Black Farmer Box to open up a grocery store and could use the help to go the last mile. Donations will assist in the build-out, purchasing shelving, high-quality fridges & freezers, marketing, stocking, rent/utilities, COVID 19 safety, updating websites, and lastly, helping us set an excellent foundation to remain a solid staple in the neighborhood.
All gifts will be availbe for Pick Up at the Fresh Houwse Grocery official opening.
If you are not located in Texas all items will ship November 2021.
