“Big chains do not come to Lawrence because they don’t see the value. There are over 90 corner stores in the city of Lawrence that are always full because people can’t get to the supermarkets. Public transportation is not reliable or accessible, and when you do get on the bus, you can only get on with the stuff you can carry. The Massachusetts Food Trust will help the local bodegas, where many residents buy the majority of groceries and meals for their families, expand their healthy food options. It will also motivate supermarkets to come to Lawrence.”
