Abstract

Supply-side approaches fail to take into account the foodways (cultural, social and economic food practices) of those who reside in food deserts. Five independently conducted studies are presented from Oakland and Chicago that investigate how low-income people eat, where and how they shop, and what motivates their food choices. Cost is the primary barrier to healthy food access, and low-income people employ a wide variety of strategies to obtain the foods they prefer at prices they can afford
