Over half a million Detroit residents live in areas that have an imbalance of healthy food options. As such, they are statistically more likely to suffer or die prematurely from a diet-related disease than those with healthy food access. Residents of Northwest Detroit have some of the highest rates of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity in the state of Michigan. Unless access to healthy food greatly improves, residents of Northwest Detroit will continue to have greater rates of premature illness and death. Lack of awareness and understanding of the role that diet plays in these deadly diseases is a barrier to improving health outcomes for our residents. Furthermore, while many residents understand the benefits of healthy eating habits, many do not have access to healthy food options in their communities. The Northwest Detroit Farmers’ Market, operated by the Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation (GRDC), increases health and welfare in Northwest Detroit by (1) increasing access to healthy food options (via free shuttle transportation to the market), (2) by educating residents about the current state of their health (via health screenings) and (3) by educating residents about living more healthful lifestyles (via cooking demonstrations, and other healthy living activities).
