Together BR to discuss "grocery gap"
BATON ROUGE - Together Baton Rouge will hold a public meeting Monday night to discuss the "grocery gap" in East Baton Rouge Parish.
The EBR Food Access Policy Commission was started by Together BR and the Mayor's Health City Initiative to address the lack of grocery stores in some communities throughout East Baton Rouge. According Together BR, the U.S. Department of Agriculture categorizes 75,000 residents of the parish as having "unacceptably low access" to grocery stores.
If you'd like to voice your opinion and give your recommendation about how to solve the "grocery gap", go to St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church (1134 Julia St.) tonight at 6:30 p.m.
