Food Desert Plate- Chazeret
Chazeret- Rotten Lettuce
A fresh leaf of lettuce symbolizes Chazeret. Fruits and vegetables in small stores in food deserts are often rotten and unhealthy. Can Community Gardens and Farmers Markets solve this problem? No. While community gardens and farmers markets can play a weekly solution for hundreds of residents, they can’t reach the thousands of daily customers of a supermarket. Those working multiple jobs rely on the convenience of the long hours that supermarkets stay open.
