World Geography Classes Learn About Local Food Deserts

Students in Mr. Sam Wallace's World Geography classes had a chance to learn from Milwaukee Alderwoman Larresa Taylor about food deserts. Food deserts are areas where people have limited access to a variety of healthful foods. This may be due to having a limited income or living far away from sources of healthful and affordable food. Grace Raymond ('24) said of the presentation, "It really put things into perspective how food deserts are a local problem. Alderwoman Taylor represents Milwaukee District 9, and has been instrumental in building new grocery stores as well as redeveloping the old Northridge Mall area to bring in better businesses."
Alderwoman Taylor is also a member of the Milwaukee Common Council.
