Healthy food in Englewood

Chitown Daily News reports on efforts to develop a “community food system” in the food desert of Englewood, with Teamwork Englewood and Growing Home among those talking the lead.  Growing Home operates an urban farm at 58th and Wood; Teamwork Englewood is including access to healthy food as part of the community’s “quality of life” planning process.  Plans include an Englewood Farmers Market — run by students at Lindblom Academy and opening in June — and a “kiosk project” to provide fresh produce in corner stores.
