New tool maps and grades ‘food deserts’ to lure supermarkets
Grist - 10/21/2010.
By Bonnie Azab Powell – Earlier this month, in a piece for our Feeding the Cities series, Stephanie Paige Ogburn explained how urban "food deserts," areas without grocery stores selling healthy food and fresh produce, came to be.
