Beyond the Classroom presents "The Affordable Grocery and Health Eating Project"

Description:
Did you know that he United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has declared areas of Prince George’s County, including College Park, food deserts? The area dominated by the University of Maryland campus is considered a low-income, low-access area for affordable, fresh, and nutritious foods. To address the food desert situation in College Park, the Affordable Grocery and Healthy Eating Project seeks to ensure that UMD students are provided with adequate access to local, nutritious and affordable groceries. We are looking to gain more information about College Park’s food desert and to identify promising options to improve access and availability of local, affordable, and nutritious foods to help Terps and the broader College Park community to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. This project seeks to inform, educate and inspire students and the broader community about the benefits of local, affordable, nutritious and sustainable food choices for a lifetime of healthy living. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 22, 2014
