A lot of times we’re shopping at what’s within our neighborhoods. Depending on where you live, you may or may not have a means of transportation, or there may be very limited public transportation. So of course, we’re going to use what’s close; especially for those who have young children at home, we’re not trying to go too far away. Unfortunately, those particular food deserts tend to greatly benefit because they know that this is the only thing within a certain mile radius of where we live, or what’s available.
