Who decides where supermarkets go? Are there enough supermarkets in the Bronx? Why does it matter? In the summer of 2012, CUP collaborated with teaching artist Hatuey Ramos-Fermín and a group of public high school students from CUNY College Now at Hostos Community College to look at who gets supermarkets, who doesn’t, and why.
We’ve designed a booklet to teach others what’s funky and what’s fresh about Bronx supermarket access. Funky Fresh is a useful tool for food justice organizations and food policy classes.
