Food deserts are hard-to-reach communities with affordable, healthy food. You know that healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy, beans, meat, and fish are often expensive or unobtainable. What should we do in the face of food deserts? Healthy food is the top concern when the whole world is moving towards a clean eating lifestyle. The lack of access will lead to an increased risk of disease and health will not be guaranteed. If you realize that you live in a food desert, you can start by helping people in your community understand what this means and talk about ways to make a change. Discuss different options, such as growing your own food.
