What Are Food Deserts? And What Is the SF Foundation Doing About Them?

According to a report from NewsOne, 20% of San Francisco's residents skip buying food to pay bills, and the city's food deserts rank as some of the most impactful in the country. Access to fresh food in the city's poorest neighborhoods is something a recent partnership between the San Francisco Foundation and several area agricultural and public works groups are hoping to address (see San Francisco Foundation: Bay Area Grants). The goal is simple: To provide healthy food for all of the city's residents.
