The Southside Community Coalition, GroundWorks Capital Coalition and the Real Food Co-op will present “Store for a Day” on Saturday, Oct. 4, beginning at 9 a.m. in the McCarthy parking lot, located on South Salina Street across from the Dunk & Bright Showroom. The store will offer fresh produce and the event will continue that day until the produce is sold out.
Organizers are hoping to make the event a regular series. “‘Store for a Day’ is aimed at offering South Side residents access to fresh produce at a reasonable price,” says Margie Gantt, director of Syracuse University’s South Side Initiative, which is offering support to the project. “We are hoping to generate interest, and to possibly recruit residents as future co-op members.”
