Re: “An oasis in a food desert

I am glad to see better choices for East Durham. But are the problems of food and nutrition considerably more complicated than this article conveys? I get the message here that availability and access are the issues, but in my experience most Americans --- especially people in our region --- are not eating fresh produce at least partly out of choice. Changing people's eating habits is much harder than simply giving people good food --- just check out Jaime Oliver's attempt in WV. Look at the Carrboro farmers market, full of fresh local produce, surrounded by poorer neighborhoods, but they don't come to the market. Is it only the price?? It's easy to say it's just the system that needs fixing.
