Food Deserts in UK

This quite shocking report shows up the lack of decent fresh food available in some areas of UK.
I cannot imagine there is a similar situation here in Turkey, even though wages are lower and times are difficult.

Re: Food Deserts in UK

In many cases it is driven by the large supermarket chains reacting to our obsession with cheap food.

Re: Food Deserts in UK

I wonder why it is not "means tested" Kanga. Frankly I find it hard to believe that people cannot afford to buy fresh vegetables and fruit. It's so easy to make a good tasty meal with plenty of vegetables, pasta and pulses. I do it quite often. Cheap n tasty. I do understand though if you live miles from a supermarket and don't have a car. Corner shops are always rather expensive.
