Urban Grocery

New Orleans 2009. Located on Claiborne Ave. at Orleans.
Access to healthy and nutritious foods remain extremely problematic in urban areas. In many socioeconomically depressed neighborhoods produce is non-existent. Partly this results from the relatively low profit margin for fresh foods for small retailers as compared with shelf stable and processed foods. An additional cause for this situation is a perceived lower demand due to a lack of dietary and culinary education. These food deserts result in significantly higher rates of heart disease and diabetes.
