DESERTED?: A Policy Report on Food Access in Four South Side Chicago Neighborhoods By Chicago Policy Research Team
eBook (PDF): $0.00
(1 Ratings)
The problem of “food deserts” in Chicago is a serious one. Low-income neighborhoods are disproportionately affected by the lack of access to healthy fresh food options, and individuals... More > living in them disproportionately suffer from diet-related illnesses. The goal of the Chicago Policy Research Team (CPRT) in this report is to analyze the food access experiences of specific neighborhoods on Chicago’s South Side, and in doing so, contribute a rich, fieldwork-based examination of the food desert question to the existing literature that predominantly features quantitative data and city-wide analyses. The report also highlights local, state and federal efforts underway to address barriers to healthy food access and makes neighborhood-specific policy recommendations.

Initiated in 2009 by Bishop Arthur M. Brazier, the Woodlawn Children’s Promise Community (WCPC) is a community-based organization acting as a catalyst for change in Chicago’s Woodlawn... More > neighborhood. The WCPC models itself after the Harlem Children’s Zone and other “Promise Neighborhoods” in its effort to create a “pipeline” of programs to support children from early childhood through young adulthood. In conjunction with the WCPC, the Chicago Policy Research Team (CPRT) investigated how to best address challenges related to early childhood development, public schools, after-school programs, children’s health care, and public safety in Woodlawn. This report is a culmination of that research and our rewarding collaboration with the WCPC. The CPRT is comprised of 73 undergraduates in the University of Chicago’s Public Policy Studies Program.< Less
