Grocery stores have been making the news in Detroit recently. Last week, the Michigan-based retailer, Meijer, opened its first Detroit location. This follows the news last month of the grand opening of the city’s first Whole Foods Market. Based on these stories, one might think Detroiters were only recently introduced to the concept of the grocery store. That’s not true.

 MSU associate professor of sociology Craig Harris, an expert in the sociology of food, discusses food security in Detroit, as well as here in mid-Michigan.
