Foot Print farms is within Jackson city limits, parts of the city are considered a food desert. That means people struggle to get fresh fruit and vegetables because they live more than one mile from the nearest grocery store. Most of Mississippi is a food desert in this way. So the current situation is particularly worrisome.
When you go to the grocery store and you see shelves empty, it is scary. Some people are afraid to go in at all. I see some lines a mile long, with people sitting and waiting to get inside. This is the problem people are facing in Mississippi at the moment. Getting good, fresh, local food is hard.
