Black Food Geographies

Ashanté M. Reese

University of North Carolina Press

Focusing on the nearest supermarket, a Safeway, this chapter explores how residents made decisions about where and when to shop. The chapter examines the many considerations at the heart of grocery shopping: time, money, stores’ reputation, and transportation. Secondly, the chapter examines how these considerations are connected to socioeconomic status and class, demonstrating the heterogeneity present in the neighborhood and the challenges this presents for food justice efforts in the neighborhood.
