Denver FRESH has mapped the locations of current food stores, and can offer information to help you consider potential areas to open or expand a store that does not currently offer a range of healthy food.
“Underserved areas” are those which are:
more than ¼ mile from a full service grocery store, AND
have a higher-than-average percentage of low-income residents, AND
have a higher-than-average percentage of residents with no vehicle.
