*Mission Focus for April – Social Equity

The mission focus for April is Social Equity

Food Deserts – Is there any more basic need than the need for food?  Why then do the poorest and most vulnerable have the least access to quality choices for food and pay more for those choices?The term “Food Desert” has been coined to describe areas where the access to food is limited.  Food pantries and organizations like FoodLink help, but they are not a long term solution.  What solutions can you imagine?  Food co- op?  Community gardens?  Tax incentives for grocery chains who locate in problem areas?
