Everyone Deserves Access!

Nearly 30 million Americans lack access to healthy, affordable food. Lack of access is what defines food deserts in low-income communities. This is according to "The Grocery Gap" - a research study written by The Food Trust and PolicyLink on the inequality of food access

The Food Trust is a non-profit organization in Philadelphia that works to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food. The Food Trust's solution to food access is more than just creating supermarkets in low-income neighborhoods. Their comprehensive approach includes "improving food environments and teaching nutrition education in schools, working with corner store owners to increase healthy offerings and helping customers make healthier choices, managing farmers' markets in communities that lack access to affordable produce and encouraging other fresh food retail development in underserved communities."
