Buffalo lawyer plans Food Equity Summit to lead in closing ‘grocery gap’

Kenneth Kolb, Department of Sociology.

Buffalo, New York, attorney and activist Kevin Gaughan is leading a Food Equity Summit Oct. 12 to make headway toward closing the “grocery gap” in East Buffalo and other minority urban communities. Tragically, it was the May 14 mass shooting at East Buffalo’s Tops supermarket that brought more attention to food inequity in the area. For the summit, Gaughan has tapped local and national experts, including Furman University’s Kenneth Kolb, professor and chair of the Department of Sociology, and author of “Retail Inequality: Reframing the Food Desert Debate.” Learn more in an article appearing in The Buffalo News.
