I agree with your caller Brian, I live on the 150s and there are no good fruits around here and the ones that are here are way too expensive than they are at Fairway.
I disagree with Mather that a pack of chips is cheaper than (which is $.99) and a single banana is 1.50 at any of the bodegus around here.

What abut Fairway at 125th Street.
Many people like me, going into NYC, stop at Fairway for good nourishing foods at modest prices.
The store is always full of shoppers.

Why aren't there more affordable grocery stores in the areas your're discussing. Not whole foods

Let the green carts only be run by people from our OWN neighborhoods, and I'll support them! I don't want interlopers coming in and profiting off us!

Hey...is there some way we can twist this into an Obama bashing segment? No? You sure? I'm sure there's a way....

It's been a while since I had schoo lunch (1990 was probably the last time), but its not much better than MacDonalds, which is why I always wanted it more than my PB and J sandwiches

I think "environmental racism" is extreme, but I think low income areas do have less access to good healthy foods because healthy today tends to be more expensive. That, however, is largely the result of agricultural policy made thousands of miles away from the city.
