Many Milwaukee youth and families do not have access to healthy food choices; they and others across the country live in what are called "food deserts"--urban or rural areas with few or no large grocery stores. Instead, they often must rely on corner stores which supply merely junk food, or fast food chains, which supply....well...fast, carbohydrate-laden food with no nutritional value. COA, SHARE, and Public Allies team up to bring youth together for Got Fresh?, an event featuring fresh foods and education in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
