A Local Mother's Fight to Promote Healthy Eating

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, at least half of Cleveland residents live in areas known as “food deserts” – neighborhoods without access to fresh, healthy, and affordable food. Experts say lack of access to healthy food plays a huge role in Cleveland’s high obesity rate, which in some neighborhoods hovers over 40%. In our continuing series “Healthy People, Healthy Places,” producer Kay Colby introduces us to one local mother who is determined to pass on healthy habits to her children and her community.
