USA EASTERN TERRITORY
In our world today, food insecurity is a growing problem.
In the United States, “food deserts” occur where there are tracts of at least 100 households located more than one–half mile from the nearest supermarket and have no vehicle access to it.*
In those neighborhoods, only drive–thru restaurants and convenience stores exist where it is easy for children and adults to develop malnutrition and obesity at the same time.
In this issue of SACONNECTS, our writers have prepared stories that reveal how The Salvation Army is responding to food insecurity in such communities. Read on to also discover how you can eat wholesome foods, exercise regularly, and stay well.
Remember, your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19–20).
