Food desert in Newport News is coming to an end

Newport News has a food desert, so that means about 10,000 people in the city have little accessibility to healthy foods, like fresh produce, and sometimes have to travel 2 miles for groceries. Luckily, Jim Scanlon is opening his shop, Jim’s Local Market, next month in the Southeast section of Newport News! The Daily Press has a cool photo gallery and video of the store’s progress.
