All People’s Fresh Market
Community Development for All People
Because of you, Community Development for All People transformed a former drive thru into the All People’s Fresh Market, providing free produce and perishables to thousands on Columbus’ South Side.
"Thank you for helping us make our fresh market a success--because you're not just helping us, you're helping our community. We all have to come together as one. This helps us help them."
— Paul Parker, Fresh Market Associate
Thanks to your generous support, a blighted drive-through liquor store has been transformed into a vibrant hub of health and wellness on the South Side. The All People's Fresh Market features an entire wall of refrigeration units, previously used for beer and wine, which now cool fruits and vegetables. The surrounding lot is being transformed into a community plaza that offers raised garden beds, affordable healthy meals, health education, and fun activities for the whole family. Best of all, the All People's Fresh Market will reduce food insecurity for over 2,000 families per year, providing over 900,000 pound of produce to the community.
Thank you for joining us--We are Better Together!
Catalyze collaborations with key strategic partners to improve the quality of life for all residents of the South Side through individual and community services.
