What is a food desert?

Food deserts are parts of the country that have a lack of fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers' markets, and healthy food providers. These places are often covered in fast food places like McDonald's, Taco Bell, and convenient marts.
