MetadataShow full item record
Food-related health problems remain widespread throughout the United States. A growing body of research shows that certain populations are disproportionately affected by issues of access to nutritious foods. Limited access is often the result of structural risks and barriers in the “food environment,” including socioeconomic status, physical proximity to food store locations, etc. The purpose of this study is to explore food environments in the city of Seattle for evidence of related disparities between youth of different backgrounds. The findings could support policies to improve access to nutritious foods for all.
