Is there a food desert near you?

What do you do if you're one of the many working poor, maybe a single mom, working two low paying jobs. You need to feed your family but there isn't a grocery in miles. But Circle K and McDonalds have graciously plunked themselves down in your poor neighborhood. Of course, you and your kids eat junk food. That's life in a food desert.
