The Oregonian, May 2, 2011. This article describes a healthy corner store project in Portland, Oregon. A non-profit, community-run corner store will sell fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, and spices at the New Columbia housing development. Previously, neighborhood residents had to travel over a mile to the closest food store. The store is a project between Village Gardens, Janus Youth Programs, and the Housing Authority of Portland. A great deal of the produce will be local, with some supplied by a nearby youth-run farm.
