In America today, most people don’t think about how they are going to get their next meal or what they are going to eat. But for some, food access is a never-ending worry. This section of the population is overwhelmingly comprised of minority groups, and the lack of food access has contributed to nutritional inequality in America. There are diet-related health issues ranging from diabetes to obesity that plague low-income groups in the United States. The nutritional imbalance between the classes is clear. Many groups lack the tools to unlock access to proper nutrition due to location, income, and education. The nutrition and health problems low-income families face can be helped with design solutions. These solutions include more awareness of where fresh food can be accessed and how communities can work together to provide healthful food for all.
