High Tech Solutions to Improve Nutritional Disparities
Socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhoods suffer from nutritional disparities. Access to healthy food is limited and financially prohibitive. USDA estimates that 23.5 million people live in low-income areas that are more than a mile from a supermarket. Public and private investments in the form of loans, grants, promotion, and other programs are designed to create healthy food options in food deserts across the country and are crucial to the community economic development.
