Fresh in Philly

Philadelphians (and the Obama administration) sing the praises of the city's Fresh Food Financing Initiative, which works to bring healthy produce and groceries to underserved locations.

"The Fresh Food Financing Initiative in Pennsylvania combines private and state funds with expertise from two non-profits to bring eight supermarkets to Philadelphia (including two in the planning stages), as well as develop more than 60 food markets in underserved communities across the state.

Besides helping to establish the supermarkets the initiative also has helped improve smaller stores so that they, too can sell fresh produce."
