This project involves research and design guidance for a grocery store in Collegetown that will increase access to healthy food options for both students and permanent residents. Students will work with the grocers, Cornell’s Division of Nutritional Sciences, City officials, and community members to describe community interest and help assist, where possible, with discussions, data-gathering, and decision-making relating to design, programming, nutritional aspects, and other related issues.
