SPECIAL PROJECT ANNOUNCEMENT
We believe that good food is a human right, and we are endeavoring to bring good food into a region that has been plagued with an abundance of fast food, convenience store food, and other unhealthy food choices. We also want to support our local urban farmers with cold storage and a distribution and community space. There are several ways you can support this project. Thank you in advance!
1. Your financial support will get us closer to our goal of $100,000! Any amount you donate will be appreciated!
2. You can write to Congresswoman Cori Bush to let her know you support A Red Circle’s community store project. (See the Press Release.)
3. You can take our survey.
4. You can learn more about the Community Advisory Council.
A Red Circle
A Red Circle, founded in 2017, exists to promote community betterment in North St. Louis County, through a racial equity lens.
Current concerns in North St. Louis County that impact quality of life and health are the lack of sustainable jobs, education disparities, limited healthy food access, financial pressures, low voter participation, and exposure to the arts. We approach these issues in a holistic, collaborative way – working with residents, elected officials, community leaders, volunteers, and more.
