This wonderful. She has done a wonderful thing for her community. It is no longer a food desert, as there is now healthy, nutritious, life giving food being sold there. Keep it up Karen!

Oh I love this woman and her determination. Bless her and I hope everyone in her area supports her efforts. This can ve done all over the country both in the USA & CANADA.

Did I say I loved her smile?

If anyone eats at McDonalds or other fast food joints then you are supporting the 1%.
