Youth Employment: A Pathway to Economic Growth

One of the greatest obstacles in eating healthy food can be a lack of accessibility. Families may choose to buy less healthy food because it is more available or less expensive than junk foods. Communities that recognize this imbalance can initiate campaigns like food drives to donate healthy foods to low-income households. In this United Way Charting a Course for Change report, tax incentives have been identified as an option for helping lower-cost groceries to appear in communities. Naturally, this would make healthy produce more widely accessible for everyone. Communities can put into action plans that would increase the accessibility of healthy foods in school cafeterias and make these options more affordable, while lowering the amount of junk food available to children.
