Food desert

Vallejo People's Garden shares vegetable seeds with Marina Vista Apartments, low-income housing units located in one of Vallejo's food deserts.  Food deserts are clusters of neighborhoods that have little or no access to foods needed to maintain a healthy diet but often served by plenty of fast food restaurants. There are four food deserts in the city of Vallejo with a population of over 115,000.
