Tyrean “Heru” Lewis was on the search for fresh produce. He headed to grocery stores in the city of St. Louis – one on the north side and one in Midtown – and he realized that the selection of fruits and vegetables was abysmal. So, he decided to take a drive out to Clayton and, in stark contrast, found the selection to be bountiful. He then took it a step farther and went all the way to West County, where he was wowed.
“They had everything,” Lewis says. “So I told myself, ‘This ain’t right. Why my neighborhood don’t have this?'”
