On April 12, The Washington Informer referenced D.C. Policy Center Fellow Randy Smith’s piece on Food Deserts in a piece titled “Farm Produces Solutions for Urban Challenges“.

“Washingtonians who live east of the Anacostia River are more likely than anyone in the city to face unemployment and poverty and, according to a March D.C. Policy Center report, live in a food desert — a place where residents must walk more than a half-mile to get to a grocery store, over 40 percent of the households have no vehicle and the median household income is less than 185 percent of the federal poverty level for a family of four.”
