In a study funded by LaSalle Bank, entitled "The Impact of Food Deserts on Public Health in Chicago," Mari Galligher, the study's author, identified the Woodlawn neighborhood as one of Chicago's "food deserts." Of course, we who live and work here did not need a study to know that Woodlawn suffers from a dearth of available fresh and wholesome foods. We are reminded of the lack of food resources every time we need a gallon of milk or hanker for a piece of fruit. According to Galligher, the consequence for Woodlawners is an egregiously high rate of diabetes and other food-related health problems.
