Food Deserts - You Can Find One in Every County in Georgia [AUDIO]
The United States Department of Agriculture defines a Food Desert as "parts of the country vapid of fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and healthy food providers."
This week on Georgia Works Radio we look into why fresh food is so difficult to find for many Georgians. We also discuss the opportunities available to fill this "gap" in the market.
Join us as we speak with:
- Cicely Garrett of the Atlanta Community Food Bank
- Rashid Nuri, founder of Truly Living Well Urban Farm
