I'm working on an article about food deserts: areas where there's limited access to fresh food. It's making me think more about those trips to the grocery store that I take almost on autopilot. Did you know that just 10 years ago, more than 2 million Americans who didn't own cars also didn't have a grocery store closer than one mile away? I gripe about doing this weekly task, but when it comes down to it, it's not a strenuous one for me to complete.
I'm curious how far you go to do your typical grocery shopping. Do you have a store close by? Do you travel for miles to get to a traditional grocery store? Do you go out of your way to go to a particular store for its selection or prices?
(I'd like to note that while I'm writing on this topic, your responses on this thread will not be used in my work. I'm just hoping to get my brain wheels turning a bit better by learning about others' experiences in this area.)
