There is an upcoming food advocacy event in Pigtown.  You can be a part of this movement!
Please join on Sat, February 11th 2012 12-3pm @ the corner of Carroll & Ostend Streets 
This event, and regular meetings have been added to the Pigtown Happens community calendar.

You've got to love all of the hard work that volunteers do in our area.  This is a great thing for people of all ages to support!  "Work is love made visible." ~Kahlil Gibran (artist & poet)

It's no secret that Pigtown is in a food desert.  This term means that there is no immediate access to affordable, healthy foods within a reasonable travel distance.  In fact, The Afro covered this issue in their article "Washington Village/Pigtown Struggles to Provide Healthy Food Options" back in December of 2010.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I LOVE the Harris Teeter that recently opened in McHenry Row, but it makes me sad that I have to drive to purchase real food, not junk.
