Getting Fat in the Desert

18 Sep 2013

Western North Carolina has some of the best restaurants in the world (it’s true, we checked), and at the same time, some of the bleakest food deserts in the country. WNC can boast about successful farmers markets, but some children rarely eat fresh fruits and vegetables.
How is this dichotomy playing a part in our food choices? in our children’s food choices?
How can we influence public policy and education to use local resources to ensure every child in WNC has access to a healthy diet?
Healthy food options will be served and feel welcome to share your own favorite healthy dish to share.
