If you care about preserving JP as a neighborhood that is home to families from all cultures and income levels, please join us to speak up against a Whole Foods coming to JP and for another locally-owned business that reflects our community.
There has been an outcry from many in JP - and especially the Latino community - that Whole Foods is not a good fit for Hyde Square. It's unaffordable to many families and will fuel increased real estate and commercial prices right smack in the middle of Hyde Square - one of the last remaining places where a thriving multi-racial and mixed income community is hanging on.
Whole Foods is not inevitable, and other business can flourish in Hyde Square. But in order to have an impact, we will need lots of support on the 28th - we need you and your family and friends to come join us!
