Words of Wisdom with Delores Banks-Butler

When God created man and woman, he placed them in the garden.

A beautiful colorful atmosphere of peace and paradise. A place where

They could enjoy the fresh and healthy foods that God created on this earth.

God knew that our bodies needed the proper healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables in order to survive from the beginning of time.  The mission of the Louisville Community Grocery is to build a cooperatively grocery store that supports the local economy with healthy affordable food through just and equitable food practices.

As President of the Louisville Community Grocery, my vision is for the organization to bring and provide  economic growth to the West end community and it’s neighborhood. To supply our community with a store that will offer healthy home grown foods from our local farmers here in Kentucky. 

I am excited to be an owner in this great movement for positive change in our community.

I am so glad to be a part of a Co-op grocery store that is member owned. This grocery store

will help build health and bring wealth in our community.

Come join me on this mission to provide our community with the healthy foods our community 

needs.   

I am reminded of an excerpt of a poem by Helen H. Moore:

 

Grow Food, Grow Food

It’s get up and go food

Grow food is food

That is healthy to eat

That helps us grow strong

From our head to our feet
