FROM DESERT TO OASIS
The resurgence of a full-service grocery store in Central Topeka.
Our mission is purpose driven to provide a nourishing and sustainable healthy food source to the Central Topeka neighborhoods.
Healthy Foods, Righteous Voices!
The Central Topeka Grocery Oasis (CTGO), a group of neighbors organized nearly four years ago to open a new grocery store to return healthy food choices to the Central Topeka family, needs your help. The CTGO’s “mission is purpose driven to provide a nourishing and sustainable healthy food source to the Central Topeka neighborhoods.”
We need to show our elected officials that we support the creation of the new store. Please email this message that will go to Topeka’s governing body members:
I fully support the CTGO’s efforts to create a new, full-service grocery store in Central Topeka:
· I want fresh fruits, vegetables and meats available within walking distance.
· I want banking, bill payment and postal services available at the new store.
· I want the new store to be green through environmental design.
· I want the new store to recognize and respect SNAP, TAN, WIC and other lower-income food programs.
· I want Central Topekans to be respected and valued through addressing food insecurity in a lower-income area.
