Heidelberg business adds deli to provide fresh meat to community
HEIDELBERG, Miss. (WDAM) - The town of Heidelberg has been known as a food desert since their last grocery store closed its doors in 2019.
But Teresa Brown, the owner of 1 Country Quickstop in downtown, has been working to make fresh food accessible to her community.
She recently added a deli to her store.
“Well, I have, bacon, ham, salami, sausage, hot and mild, Cajun turkey, regular turkey, just a variety,” Brown said.
She said she wants to do her part and help her community in whatever way she can, which is how she came up with the idea to get a deli and make fresh meat accessible.
“It’s limited on places to get meat from,” Brown said. “I think it was a great idea to help my community with that because without you guys, none of this would be possible, and I want to say thank you and I really appreciate the support.”
