“This is a real entrepreneurship opportunity for them, but also an opportunity for them to bring food justice to our neighborhood,” said By the Hand Club for Kids Executive Director Donnita Travis.

A group of teenagers from Chicago are on a mission to address food insecurity in the city. According to Block Club Chicago, By the Hand Club for Kids recently launched a project to transform a liquor store on Chicago’s West Side into a pop-up fresh food market.


The concept for the market was created following a roundtable discussion hosted by By the Hand Club for Kids—a nonprofit centered on educating and empowering youth from underserved communities—about the unrest following the murder of George Floyd.

The teens joined forces with professional athletes Jason Heyward, Diamond DeShields, Jonathan Toews, Lucas Giolito, Mitch Trubisky and others to raise $500,000 to purchase the liquor store and start the transformation process.

Projects like the one being led by By the Hand Club for Kids are needed as food deserts have been a pressing issue in Chicago. According to a study conducted by the University of Chicago, although there was an increase of supermarkets throughout the city, there remains a huge lack of accessibility to affordable healthy food options among African-American and socioeconomically disadvantaged residents […]
