ABOUT EVANS CENTER
Evans Center, formerly known as Evans Supermarket, was the epicenter of social activities in South Brevard County. It was operated by Mr. Roosevelt “Ross” Evans. After Mr. Evans death, the store was mismanaged and attracted a criminal element. Eventually, the store closed and the asbestos-riddled building was demolished. Fueled by residents and partners, the Evans Center opened in February 2019. It is transforming the neighborhood it serves from a “food desert” into a “food oasis”, introducing walkable, affordable access to fresh meats, produce, dairy and all the necessary food stuffs for healthy dietary choices. A hot food deli is also popular and neighbors are once again enjoying this community gathering place. The Center also hosts a Brevard Health Alliance Clinic and a community room with workshops on topics such as health & wellness and youth job training.
