Navigating LA's Food Deserts: Airs 7/26 @ 1 PM from 89.3 KPCC on Vimeo.
The lack of healthy food options in low-income communities, where cheap fast food is often more easily found than fresh produce, has been blamed for a variety of public health problems, including a higher prevalence of diabetes among racial and ethnic minorities. Earlier this month, KPCC's Patt Morrison hosted a special event at KPCC's Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena, a combined farmers' market and town hall discussion on the scarcity of healthy food available to residents of South Los Angeles. An edited broadcast, Navigating LA's Food Deserts, airs Monday at 1 p.m. on 89.3 KPCC.
