Assessing the impact of Whole Foods in Englewood one year later

By Daniel Tucker, Tony Sarabia,

A year has passed since the opening of a Whole Foods Market in a low-income food desert on Chicago’s South Side.

WBEZ South Side reporter Natalie Moore took a look at the impact the high-end grocer has had in Englewood and found results have been mixed.

Moore joined Morning Shift on Friday to discuss what she learned.

“Everyone I’ve talked to has said that a year is not enough time,” she told Morning Shift host Tony Sarabia.
