The longtime Indy chain, Double 8 Foods, closed unexpectedly last week without warning residents of the neighborhoods they serve. In an already dire food access situation, many of our low-income urban residents now find themselves without any access to basics like milk and bread. The MESH Coalition, a “managed emergency preparedness healthcare coalition,” is trying to help affected residents by releasing this list of the closed Double 8 groceries with nearby groceries and food pantries along with their corresponding bus routes. MESH encourages citizens with additional needs to call 2-1-1 to see what other resources may be available. Here's their list:
