WRITTEN BY Eleni Bickell

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food deserts as areas where access to affordable and nutritious food is limited. Household income and distance from grocery stores typically influence whether an area is designated as a food desert, along with other considerations, including access to personal/public transportation. Living in food deserts impacts food security, food affordability, federal nutrition program participation, health outcomes, economic and social attainments, real estate prices and more.
