- Various Grocery Store Chains
- United States of America
The Delano neighborhood of Wichita KS is a food desert. The closest grocery stores are 2.8 miles and 3.2 miles away. Locating a small or moderate sized grocery store in the Delano neighborhood would serve over 3000 homes in Delano plus thousands of others in the surrounding neighborhoods of Riverside, Sunflower, McCormick, and Downtown Wichita. Delano and Downtown Wichita have seen multiple apartments built in the years since the last neighborhood grocery store closed, which was at Douglas and Meridian.

By signing this petition I am asking a grocery store chain or an independent grocer to open a small or moderate sized grocery store in the Delano neighborhood of Wichita to affordable food to the residents and/or workforce in Delano, Riverside, Sunflower, McCormick, and Downtown Wichita.
