Save the MLK Jr. Drive Food Lion in High Point

This petition had 289 supporters

The Food Lion on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in High Point is scheduled to close. If this happens low-income families that live in the single-family homes and dozens of apartments in the area would not have access to a grocery store that would allow them healthy food options.

The area is already considered a food desert and the closing down of this grocery store would further increase both economic and heath disparities in the area due to the loss of jobs and lack of access to fresh fruit, respectively. For many this would be the only store that they would be able to reach to go grocery shopping, as they don't always have reliable transportation. 

By signing this petition, which will be presented to Food Lion's parent company Delhaize Group, you are agree that you'd like the Food Lion that is currently there to remain and not be shut down.
