This is a project from the 2012 Environmental Studies 411 'Community Projects' senior clinic course.
Food access is a health issue -- Is healthy food available to all? -- and it's a social justice issue -- Are disadvantaged population more likely to have poor food access? This group examined how available food is in Sunbury. Sunbury turns out to have very good food access compared to other towns in central Pennsylvania, as a legacy of Weis Foods being headquartered in the town and supporting two grocery stores in the city.
- Andrew Kilough, Devon Lindsley, Geneva Hesner, Margaret Turrentine.
This map illustrates how many more big (green) and little (purple) food stores are within 1/4 - 1/2 miles of the residents of Sunbury, vs. the case for Northumberland.
