What's an Urban Food Desert?
Here is the opening:
"A food desert is more than just the absence of grocery stores. Like a sand desert, there are oasis of food in urban places if you know where to look. But is the oasis real or a mirage? Peeling back the layers, you begin to see that a desert that at first looks like a liability is in fact an economic opportunity that can change the health and well-being of residents of the urban core."
