About Fultonia:

Fultonia is a look into Chicago’s healthy past, present, and future through the eyes of nutritionist and health food advocate, Dr. Alvenia Fulton. 40 years after her 1960s iconic storefront, a collective of urban cyclists and makers, committed to the health, wealth, and environment of Black communities, happened upon a building with no other marker than a weathered sign saying “Fultonia” near the intersection of Damen and West 63rd. Fultonia, is revived here— bringing Dr. Fulton’s work to life and offering a space to plant the seeds that shape our future.
