Ward 8 Councilman Mike Polensek says it’s clear from where he’s standing at the corner of East 105th and St. Clair Avenue.
“This section of Glenville is a food desert.”
Glenville residents are among 23.5 million Americans who live in what the USDA calls a “food desert.”
That is: a low-income neighborhood where at least a third of the population lives a mile from a grocery store.
“We need a grocery store here,” says Councilman Polensek.
Supermarkets deserted the food desert
