The world of food retail is marked by consolidation that increasingly threatens independently owned stores and leaves rural areas lacking options. Rural communities are challenging the status quo by creating new ways of selling food. Join the Food Policy Networks project for a discussion with representatives from Kansas State University’s Rural Grocery Initiative, the Catawba Fresh Market in South Carolina, and Wholesome Harvest Food Co-op in Frostburg, Maryland to learn about how rural communities are navigating the retail space.
