But many low-income neighborhoods and communities of color have been systematically deprived of access to healthy and sustainable food. These communities have been actively prevented from producing their own food and often live in "food deserts" where fast food is more common than fresh food. Bringing together insights from studies of environmental justice, sustainable agriculture, critical race theory, and food studies, highlights the ways race and class inequalities permeate the food system, from production to distribution to consumption."@en ;
