1. Shame on Safeway!
Help us bring Safeway's disgrace to light!
Sign and share our petition demanding that Safeway eliminate restrictive deeds preventing new grocery stores from replacing them on their former properties.
Our research and final report on lack of access to healthy foods in Vallejo, CA, revealed that Safeway (the large supermarket chain) has been making it even harder for people in communities of color and low-income communities to access healthy foods. How? Safeway places restrictive deeds on their former properties making it impossible for a new grocery store to move in.
Our research also revealed that Vallejo is not the only community impacted by Safeway's greed. This needs to be stopped!
