In Las Vegas, where over 30% of residents are Latino and more than 7% of the city’s population does not have nearby supermarkets, many kids find their only food options at corner stores.
City officials are hoping to get healthier, fresh foods into these ares. The City of Las Vegas Planning Department issued a resolution this year urging the city to increase access to healthy foods for all city residents. They hope to work with grocery stores and medium-sized markets to encourage them to set up stores in underserved areas.
