We are in the research and concept development stage of this project. Working with a team from Quest – Greater Hartford Leadership, we are in the process of doing market and community research as well as engaging with our local neighborhood and community about what the needs are for a local neighborhood grocery store.

Quest unites high-performing mid-career professionals from many different sectors — nonprofit, government, education, business — around the idea of growing stronger together through collaborative leadership and social responsibility. A core component of the program is community engagement. Participants connect with the community to identify needs and form diverse task forces to address these needs. Since 1986, these task forces have developed projects related to children and youth, community and economic development, arts and culture, support for the homeless and more.
