Food deserts amid the holiday season

food deserts

Food access is something many of us may not think about often, but it is a serious issue in America. There are 23 million Americans living in food deserts, areas where people lack accessible transportation and reside over a mile from the nearest grocery store.

Those who reside in food deserts often experience food insecurity, obesity and other health issues, like diabetes.

At PA Health & Wellness, we believe it’s important to help our neighbors, especially during the holiday season. ‘Tis the season for giving, so join us in our efforts. Consider donating fresh groceries to local food pantries or volunteering.

– Justin Davis, PA Health & Wellness
