The Lewis Center at UCLA hosts an afternoon discussion on food insecurity and strategies for making healthier food options available in less-than-affluent neighborhoods.
Neelam Sharma and Peter Capone-Newton, of the Geffen School of Medicine, will discuss how food insecurity plays out in the daily reality of Los Angeles families.
From the website:
In Los Angeles County the availability of healthy food varies by neighborhood, with economically disadvantaged and racial/ethnic minority neighborhoods having little to no access to grocery stores with fresh fruits and vegetables. Instead, discount and convenience food stores abound.
