Community Center: Fresh Food Retailer Wanted
We're entering the next phase of the Holy Cross Project in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans and gearing up to break ground on construction of our 8000+ square foot Community Development and Climate Action Center (CDCAC). Global Green's New Orleans office has released a Request For Proposal for a fresh food retailer (PDF of RFP) to occupy a 1,000-2,000 square foot space in the structure. The deadline for submission is Friday, June 8. It's great opportunity to bring fresh produce to the Lower Ninth Ward and address the pressing issue of the area's food desert -- and we are offering incentives to attract this fresh food retailer, including free rent and utilities for the first three months of occupancy.
