4 thoughts on “City Not Immune When It Comes to Food Deserts

  1. I don’t understand the context…is this lack of restaurants? Grocery stores? Mini-marts? The website doesn’t go into much detail when clicked through either.

  2. A food desert is any area in the industrialised world where healthy, affordable food is difficult to obtain. It is prevalent in rural as well as urban areas and is most prevalent in low-socioeconomic minority communities, and is associated with a variety of diet-related health problems [1](Story, Kaphingst, Robinson-O’Brien, & Glanz, 2008). Food deserts are also linked with supermarket shortage.
