Bringing Food and Knowledge to New Orleans

What Wendell Pierce is doing in one of America’s greatest cities seems kind of off-beat. The interview is prefaced by how odd it is to see a celebrity opening a chain of grocery stores in the city. He isn’t selling clothes, watches, perfume. He’s selling culture and health back to the city he loves. And that’s damned admirable.

Vigeland: What does it mean in a community when you don’t have affordable places to shop for food?

Pierce: First of all, it means that people are going to buy what they can get their hands on, and it’s going to be processed, fast, quick, unhealthy choices.
