RAMS Kitchen to add wheels to bring Gastonia NC residents healthy food

2 min read

The Highland community in west Gastonia has lacked a grocery store for decades, but there are steps being taken to lessen food scarcity in the community.

In May, Donyel Barber helped to create a food kitchen in the food-scarce area, known as RAMS kitchen, an acronym for Really Amazing Meals with Soul.

Barber, a member of Gastonia City Council, hopes to expand the healthy resources of the kitchen by opening a food truck in January 2022.

“The City Council has been working on attracting a grocery store to the area for many years but we can’t force a business into the area,” said Barber. 

Some grocery store chains may not place stores in certain communities because the community doesn’t meet a specific median income, Barber said.
