What is a Food Desert? And why should I come to the Symposium?

FYI–a food desert is defined as any area where healthy, affordable food is difficult to obtain.  people who live in food deserts are either miles away from a grocery store or have no adequate means of transportation to arrive there.  they are often faced with the option of either going hungry or filling up on empty, convenience-store calories.  to learn more about food deserts and other issues of food ethics, come to our symposium.
