this has been a problem in the east end for quite a while, and there has been some weak efforts from public health to address the food security problem. there doesn't seem to be much interest from the city otherwise.

i'll also comment that it isn't necessarily a short-sighted move. the movement of more affluent people to the area tends to change food purchasing power. people who can drive are more willing to shop elsewhere for cheaper or better quality food. sure, there are still numerous people living in this area who have yet to be pushed out by the housing bubble and are unable to drive, but it's the higher end grocery items which make the most money and it's not low income people buying them.
