Richardson et al. Annals of Epidemiology, Dec 2017; DOI: 10.1016/j.annepidem.2017.10.011.

Abstract link >

The community that received a new supermarket experienced less food insecurity, fewer new cases of high cholesterol and arthritis, and lower SNAP participation over time when compared to a similar community that did not receive a supermarket. The supermarket community also saw trends of increasing resident incomes and fewer new cases of diabetes. Both study communities are predominantly African-American (95%) and low-income, which are groups most affected by health disparities. While economic gains can be associated with gentrification, researchers found that less than 1% of the supermarket study community moved away from the neighborhood. Therefore local residents enrolled in the study were not pushed out by improvements. This study provides strong evidence that introducing a new supermarket in a previously underserved community brings health and economic gains for local residents.
