You've heard about food deserts. How about food swamps? They are low-income areas with an overabundance of fast-food and convenience stores. For many folks who live in these areas, it is extremely difficult to find nutritious food in their neighborhoods. Many of these folks work multiple jobs and often have little time to go outside their neighborhood to shop for fruits and vegetables. So the only alternative for many is to patronize the neighborhood hamburger or fried chicken place.
