The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines food deserts as areas – often impoverished – devoid of healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables.

A recent report suggests Cincinnati set-up a $15 million fund to attract grocery stores to city neighborhoods that are currently described as food deserts.  These are geographic areas with low access to affordable, healthy food.

A study finds there are 24 supermarkets in the Cincinnati metropolitan area, putting the region below the national average by about 10 stores.
