Food City, 705 Columbus at 94th St.

Council Member Gale A. Brewer, Local 338 RWDSU-UFCW, and neighbors rally for beloved neighborhood grocery store

On Sunday, April 14, 2013, at 1:00pm, Council Member Gale A. Brewer will join members ofLocal 338 Retail Wholesale Department Store Union and United Food and Commercial Workers (RWDSU-UFCW) and hundreds of neighbors to support Food City, located at 705Columbus Avenue, Manhattan, a grocery store with over 40 years of doing business on the upper West Side. Food City has not been given a lease by the owner of the building since 2004 and may be forced to close as a result.

Food City has been an important part of this neighborhood for decades, offering reasonably priced produce and groceries to West Siders. Most recently, Food City was featured in the 2012-2013 Age-Friendly Grocery Guide, produced by Council Member Brewer, for embodying the best practices of local businesses in addressing the needs of older adults.

TONIGHT: 5:30 PM - Rally for Fair Elections (for Tenants & Others!)

In the wake of Sen Smith's arrest, it's pretty clear that Albany needs to change. 

We all agree that New York’s campaign finance system is broken. Big money interests, like the wealthy real estate lobby, drown out the voices of everyday New Yorkers. It’s time to change the way politics works in Albany.

The Fair Elections for New York campaign is calling on state legislators to support meaningful campaign finance reform, which will put the process back in the hands of voters and is proven to increase small donor participation in campaigns. We have an historic opportunity to get the campaign finance system we deserve.

On Wednesday, April 3rd, let's curb landlord power in Albany.


Wed, April 3 @ 5:30pm
1199/SEIU Auditorium, 310 W 43rd Street

Speakers from the NAACP, 1199SEIU, Greenpeace, and
Met Council will join other labor, tenant, and community leaders to demand Fair Elections in NY State.
