Letter: Co-op market much needed in downtown

It has always been disturbing to me that most of the major grocery stores in Columbus are clustered on the east side of town. East Columbus has already lost its grocery store, and the options downtown are few and expensive. As a downtown resident, I was thrilled to learn that the Columbus Co-op wants to move into the old Wonder Bread building.

There is a national movement for Americans to eat better. Is that only for certain neighborhoods? Every Columbus resident should have easy access to fresh produce and quality food. That should actually be a factor in city planning.

I don’t know how the decision will be made about the use of the Wonder Bread building. I hope, however, that there is a realization of how much the co-op is needed in the downtown community.

Don't settle for a preview.
