In his article “Good Food Manifesto,” Will Allen calls upon President Obama and Congress to look at their spending, and reallocate funds to research ways to prevent diseases rather than finding ways to cure them. One way to prevent diseases such as diabetes and obesity is by educating the public. In the article by Sarah Kliff, the argument that food deserts don’t even matter is brought up. She writes about how a food desert is defined, and how the person in the grocery store buying food is responsible for buying healthy food. Yes, the supermarket sells junk food, but they do also sell some nutritious options as well. Finally, the article by Rebecca Messner gives the reader a look at how one food desert is dealing with the lack of good food. A local church is growing their own food, spinach, kale, lettuce, etc. to give out to the community affected by the desert. The residents are happy with the option to have fresh grown and chemical free food that is supplied by a local organization. This is shown by how fast the food is given out at harvest time.
