DAY 84 - MPA LLC Calls for guidelines and status for 120 days authorized by City of Milwaukee Common Council

MILWAUKEE | Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC continues to seek TRANSPARENCY and ACCOUNTABILITY through public policy review.  Today we are looking at the theme Food Desert.

Obesity, hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipemia, gout, and arthritis—all of these chronic diseases may result from poor food choices and a lack of fresh, unprocessed foods. Doctors and health care providers try to educate patients in food deserts about eating healthy, but without the money, access to healthy food, or a history of eating healthy, it can be difficult to affect positive long-term change.
Doctors, public health officials, and non-profits are trying to tackle this health epidemic.  Farmers markets are beginning to accept food stamps. Non-profits are attempting to bring community gardens and healthy food trucks to impoverished, urban areas. There may be no capitol gain to opening a supermarket in a poor area with less money and less demand for healthy food, but the effect on a community would be paramount.
A good grocery store would not only generate jobs within a community; it would help provide healthy meals to families and break a cycle of poor nutrition. It is not enough, but it is a start.
