Lupe Fiasco Supports Fresh Food Availability

Hip-hop artist raises awareness on Chicago “food deserts,” and serves vegan grub to Englewood residents.

Last Tuesday, Chicago-based hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco stood outside Payless Grocery, an Englewood corner store in Chicago and served Soul Vegan Food’s meatless ribs, macaroni, and greens to neighborhood residents. Fiasco commends Payless Grocery’s effort to provide fresh produce to locals, especially since other neighborhood corner stores lack whole foods and primarily sell packaged foods and alcohol. Fiasco is passionate about changing the foods sold at corner stores and hopes that fresh produce can become more accessible to people of all incomes. “It may seem like it’s insignificant, but you never know who’s going to walk away with something,” says Fiasco.
