Get Ready for National Food Desert Month!



Now that it’s August, there is a month to prepare for National Food Desert Awareness month.

Work with your community to raise awareness and find solutions for food deserts. Help bring healthy alternatives to fast food and resulting poor health. Be a part of the solution and help solve this problem!

National Food Desert Awareness Month is sponsored by The National Center for Public Research, whose founding president, Mari Gallagher, is based in Chicago and is Principal of Mari Gallagher Research and Consulting Group. Gallagher is a pioneer of in-depth studies and research on food deserts, and has been instrumental in making a dent on the food desert front.

To learn much more about food deserts and read Gallagher’s groups research, go to Mari Gallagher Research and Consulting Group’s website at:
