Why Grocery Stores Are Avoiding Black Neighborhoods

Why Grocery Stores Are Avoiding Black Neighborhoods

A food desert is an area with low-access to healthy and affordable food. About 19 million people in America live in a food desert, and it disproportionately affects Black communities. Despite nationwide efforts to improve poor food environments, many of the biggest names in America’s grocery industry continue to avoid these neighborhoods. In the midst of a worldwide pandemic and raging protests against police brutality, there’s another silent crisis wreaking havoc on America’s most vulnerable communities: food deserts. The USDA defines a food desert as a place where at least a third of the population lives greater than one mile away from a supermarket for urban areas, or greater than 10 miles for rural areas. By this definition, about 19 million people in America live in a food desert. The lack of grocery stores in many poor, Black neighborhoods has been a big topic in public policy since Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign in 2010. The initiative was designed to reduce childhood obesity by providing better food in schools and by bringing healthier options to low-income communities using public and private sector funding. Another chief goal of the program was to eliminate food deserts in America within seven years. Despite nationwide efforts to improve poor food environments, many Americans say this problem persists today.

Jim Crow of the North | Redlining and Racism in Minnesota | Full Documentary

Roots of racial disparities are seen through a new lens in this film that explores the origins of housing segregation in the Minneapolis area. But the story also illustrates how African-American families and leaders resisted this insidious practice, and how Black people built community — within and despite — the red lines that these restrictive covenants created.

Extreme heat is worse in redlined neighborhoods

Extreme heat is worse in redlined neighborhoods

As you move through a city, you probably notice summer heat can be a lot worse depending on which neighborhood you’re in. This isn't a coincidence. Says study co-author Vivek Shandas – "when we studied 108 cities across the country we found a systematic pattern that the redlined communities were today, on average, about seven degrees hotter than their non redlined counterparts." Maybe you’ve heard of the “urban heat island” effect, where cities are significantly hotter than surrounding areas. Urban landscapes, particularly roadways with black asphalt, large buildings, turn solar radiation into heat. These features absorb the heat from the sun during the day. In the evening, when temperatures are supposed to cool down, the retained heat is released back into the neighborhood. Redlined neighborhoods were more likely to be slotted for freeways, while green-coded neighborhoods were more likely to be given parks.
