Nonprofit Grocery Store May Be A Solution for Food Desert In Southern Dallas

When a Dallas nonprofit failed to attract a corporate grocery owner to one of the city's food deserts, a nonprofit looked to Waco's Jubilee Market as a model for a nonprofit, community-based grocery. Jubilee's parent organization, the nonprofit Mission Waco, carefully researched the market before taking the plunge into this low-margin business. Though it doesn't quite turn a profit yet, Jubilee has improved the surrounding community and the lives of people who once lived miles from the nearest quality produce and other affordable groceries.
