As we campaign to raise funds to mobilize healthy food access in low income areas of Charleston, particularly North Charleston, we are suddenly struck with a not-so subtle reminder of the gap within our community.  Amazingly, it is still present.  It hurts my heart and soul to see it, hear it, and feel it.  It has always been my hope that bridging the gap in our local food economy would prove one small step forward in addressing a stale and unwarranted separation.  In no way do I wish to achieve a platform for debate or senseless rhetoric.  However, I think it is important to note that at our very core, we stand behind not one race, color, or people.  We stand firmly behind equality, civility, and opportunity.  Not simply the words, but the realization of them.  You can glance back in the mirror for reflection but never divert your eyes from the road of progress.  -Lindsey 4/7/2015
