Carina Xue Luo, geospatial data specialist at the Academic Data Centre here at Leddy Library, had the opportunity discuss the issue of food deserts in Windsor with the Windsor Star. Her research indicates that "fewer than one in five people in Windsor live within walking distance of a grocery store". Accessing healthy and affordable food in these areas can be challenging for elderly people, single parent households, and low-income families. Be sure to check out the article and video on here.
