Garza discusses Del Valle’s grocery dilemma

Monday, September 16, 2019 by Tai Moses

Mayor Pro Tem Delia Garza and city staffers will be hosting a roundtable on future plans for a grocery store in Southeast Austin. Residents of Del Valle have been trying to get a grocery store in their community for years; lacking a supermarket, residents must shop at convenience and dollar stores and drive long distances for fresh produce. Del Valle is included on the USDA’s map of food deserts. In 2016, Garza told KUT that she would consider offering economic incentives to get the community a supermarket. At the roundtable discussion, light refreshments will be served and Spanish translation will be available. Saturday, Sept. 28, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Del Valle Opportunity Center, 5301 Ross Road.
