We’re walking to downtown Anacostia from the only grocery store in Ward 8– which is a 45 minute walk away. East of the River deserves more.
We envision a city that makes deep, comprehensive investments in healthy food for all. Join us at this action for food justice– because everyone should have access to fresh, healthy, affordable food.
10 AM – Gather in the shopping center parking lot near Giant (1535 Alabama Ave SE)
10:15 AM – Begin walk (route Left out of the parking lot onto Alabama Ave, Right on Martin Luther King Jr. Ave)
11:00 AM – End walk at 2424 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave (across from Thurgood Marshall Academy)
