courtney commented on Feeding Food Deserts

The Food Environment Atlas http://www.ers.usda.gov/foodatlas/atlas/ gives a very interactive visual understanding of 'food desserts' in the US. It also describes 'food deserts' based on criteria from access of transportation to grocery stores, to access to locally grown foods, to stores with maternal health approve food etc.
