Food is a right, not a privilege.
For an urban area, a food desert is defined as a geographic area that is both low-income (poverty rate of 20% or higher) and is not within a mile of a full-service grocery store. Living in a food desert limits the ability to access nutritious food choices including fresh fruits and vegetables, and consequently has a major impact on overall health. Because food deserts are low-income areas, residents are less likely to have a vehicle, further restricting access to nutritious food. – Tulsa Equality Indicators
