The neighborhood of Avondale has been without a grocery, making it a food desert, since Aldi closed in 2008. But big changes are underway in the community and now the opening of a new grocery appears to be just around the corner.
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is investing more than $10 million into the neighborhood and a Findlay Market vendor plans to open a new grocery in the Avondale Town Center.
Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the Avondale Town Center and investment in the community is Community Builders Director of Community Life Reginald Harris; Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Director of Community Relations Adison Nelson; Cozy Home Child Care and Learning Center Owner Morgan Hill; and Avondale resident Aunnie Richardson.
Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
