Councilwoman Sexton Smith to attend special ribbon cutting for grand opening of “The Oasis”

July 11, 2018

Louisville – Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith will be on hand for the official ribbon cutting for “The Oasis” on Thursday, July 12th as the new store begins selling food at 2235 West Market Street.

          The Oasis will officially open its doors to provide foods including a variety of frozen meats, fruit and vegetables and healthy snack options for neighborhood families at great prices!

          “Access to affordable, healthful food is a basic human right and we are creating new options in Metro District 4 to do just that. Several large grocery stores closed in our area which forced us to look for innovative solutions,” says Sexton Smith. “The Oasis is just one example of how we are bringing food to the neighborhoods one block at a time. Stay tuned as more options become available.”

          The ribbon cutting is set for 10:00am on Thursday.

          The event also includes taking the lemon challenge which is an attempt to raise awareness by promoting healthy eating and living.

          The Oasis is a partnership among Louisville Metro Government, Dare to Care Food Bank, Catholic Charities of Louisville and CashSaver Cost Plus Food Store.
