In Baltimore, Reinvestment Fund used HFFI funding to help finance Apples & Oranges Fresh Market and the Howard Park Supermarket. Apples & Oranges Supermarket was a minority-owned market in an East Baltimore neighborhood with an unmet grocery demand of $26.4 million. Apples & Oranges created four full-time and 11 part-time jobs, and it included meeting space for nutrition and health education programs for the community. Reinvestment Fund worked with the Opportunity Finance Network and Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development (BUILD) to bring a 67,000-square-foot, full-service ShopRite supermarket to Baltimore's Howard Park community. The Howard Park ShopRite provides access to fresh foods and created 250 full- and part-time jobs, many of which are filled by neighborhood residents. You can find more information here.
