What is a food desert and what can we do about them?
A community that is more than 10 miles from a grocery store is considered a food desert. In these areas convenience stores and fast food restaurants move in to create food swamps. Food is available, but most of it is processed and fried, and is high in fat, salt and chemicals. These same "bad" foods are available at a grocery store as well, however at least there are options. I conducted an experiment with a $20 limit to feed 4 people. I went to a traditional grocery store
