equip them with basic life and social skills necessary to survive and thrive on their own.

Industrial Park Mini-Market
Establishing this mini-market/grocery store within the community is critical due to the particular area of Port Huron, Michigan deemed a food desert. Industrial Park Mini-Market – Establishing this healthy or organic mini-market/grocery store within the community is critical due to the particular area of Port Huron, Michigan being deemed by the FDA as a food desert. A food desert is defined as a urban neighborhood or a rural town without easy access to fresh, healthy and affordable food. In America, 23 ½ million people live in areas that the FDA have deemed as food deserts. More than half, which is about 13.5 million people in confirmed FDA food deserts are low-income families. This makes it even more difficult for the families to travel beyond their surroundings to purchase fresh, healthy and affordable food. Help us raise the funds to purchase the land, pay the contractors and have buying to a local healthy or organic grocery store within the south side of Port Huron, Michigan.
