Dollar Stores’ Growing Impact on Local Food Environments

July 9, 2019 1:00 pm Eastern Time

Cosponsored with Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders

Over the past two decades, funders have worked with food retailers to help them become better corporate citizens by offering healthy, fresh, and affordable food options. Now, a new kind of food retailer is expanding into rural and low-income urban communities: dollar stores. Mounting evidence shows that dollar stores are triggering the closure of grocery stores, eliminating jobs, and eroding food environments in some of the nation’s most vulnerable communities. This webinar discussed the expansion of dollar stores and how funders might start to address the challenges that they present. Speakers included Vanessa Hall-Harper of the Tulsa, Oklahoma City Council and Frank Morris of KCUR National Public Radio.
