WHRF on front page of The Cincinnati Enquirer's Monday Edition!
On 7/16/2018 we landed on the front page of the Enquirer's printed edition! We'd like to thank the Cincinnati Enquirer for such a great article on top of the other stories and videos about our work they've produced. THANK YOU!
""The grocery-to-be will have things that community members have voiced as important to them: fresh produce from community gardens, meat and dairy from local farms, eggs from local backyard chickens and baked goods from local bakers. These products will be priced affordably, as the project is geared toward helping lower-income consumers in the area...In its proposal, the Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation pushed for more than just a grocery store. The application lists services such as a kitchen with soup and juice-making capability, nutrition education programs and a mobile produce truck that will take groceries to residents who can't get to the store." - Cincinnati Enquirer, Jun 26, 2018.
"The Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation tells us they are in talks with local food partners to bring more local jobs to the location....'We are talking to a couple of other organizations in the city that we are talking to so that we can raise enough money to redo the Kroger building and make it a food hub,' Waite said. The brewery is also in talks to bring in a local food partner at the site." -WLWT channel 5, Jun 25, 2018.
"What happens next? One hundred thousand dollars, although impressive, do not a complete grocery store make. Dangel, Winters Waite and others plan to meet with design firms to help them map out the space's second act and continue applying to grants they hope will help them provide more comprehensive services. At the $100,000 price point, the store they can afford will be more like a 'mini grocery."' -WCPO channel 9, Jun 25, 2018.
