When the govt. first put out an interactive map of the alleged "food deserts" I went right online to look for any in areas I knew. I was shocked to see several in my very built-up part of Eastern Massachusetts... until I zoomed in far enough to see these areas were very nicely drawn around almost nothing but cemetaries and schools! You go, Michelle, FEED those dead folks!! And as for the SCHOOLS... I have to agree, most school lunches aren't FOOD at all... But they aren't doing anything at the national level to help that, and they shouldn't of course.
