This is a guide to the people of Minneapolis who live in one of the largest food deserts in the country. This page is going to define the term “food desert,” and explain how this problem is created and perpetuated by racist and classist systems of oppression. It will then describe the food desert that exists in North Minneapolis by comparing the access that this neighborhood has to fresh food to others in the city. The page will then conclude with a section with suggestions on how activists and people in the community can talk to others about food deserts and their problems.
