Study Finds Food Disparity

Santa Clara study shows that low-income families have less access to healthy foods.

The Food Empowerment Project (FEP) has released the results from a Santa Clara County study showing the disparity between the availability of healthy food options, especially fresh fruits and vegetables, for low versus high income communities. The findings showed that in contrast to the high-income communities, which have many large supermarkets containing fresh produce, the lower-income neighborhoods have twice as many liquor stores, an abundance of meat products, and little to no access to organic produce. The study also showed that very few meat and dairy alternatives are available to lower-income communities, which is concerning due to the growing prevalence of lactose intolerance and dairy sensitivities.
