Food for Thought:
Alleviating Greenville's Food Deserts

For many, if not for most of us, Greenvilleis a thriving city -- and a well-fed city, with bulging supermarkets, crowded farmers markets, and scores of local farms selling healthly, culturally appropriate food directly to our residents. 

But for many in our area, ready access to healthful food is a struggle, either because they live in "food deserts" -- areas where good foods are not just around the corner and available -- or because limited income does not seem to offer healthful alternatives to processed foods. 

The September TEDxGreenvilleSalon looks at these issues through the voices of two advocates spreading a ministry of better nutritional access and knowledge throughout the community.
