We were thrilled that the community came to celebrate our "Breaking Ground, Breaking Mentalities" Groundbreaking Ceremony on 6/22! Many people are excited about and ready for the change that will occur when we bring healthy choices and lifestyles to the current food desert climates across Jacksonville! Thank you so much to News4Jax for filming our ceremony and advertising our beginnings!
Many communities in Jacksonville, such as around Kings Road where we will be located, are flooded with unhealthy food options around every corner! The grocery stores that do exist are not readily accessible the way fast food joints are.
We need to change the way of healthy living for people in food deserts where "junk food" carrying processed toxins is plentiful.
EBI Community Market will provide our customers with the best meat and veggie options for their health and longevity!
Our goal is to also provide financial literacy and budgeting workshops to community members and break the habit of thinking that healthy food is "too expensive" - because it is not!
