Boxcar Grocer raising funds for expansion into food deserts The brother and sister team that brought fresh produce and sandwiches to an Atlanta food desert are at it again. This time they’re raising money with hopes of taking their business to the next level.
Castleberry Hill's Boxcar Grocer opened at the beginning of this year, bringing local products and fresh sandwiches into a neighborhood that has long been without a full, quality grocery. The brother and sister team are now aiming at expanding the offerings of their current location and bringing their vision into food deserts throughout Atlanta. That buzzword, "food deserts," is another way of saying what the USDA describes as "low-income communities that lack ready access to healthy food."
