Interactive Food Desert Map

Did you see any of our blog posts last semester about food? There were some about Junk Food, Helping Moraine Students who are going Hungry, Pink Slime, and The Campus-Wide Food Drive.

Check out this food desert map published by the US Department of Agriculture.


  • Do you live near, or do you even live in any of these food deserts?
  • What is a definition of a food desert? How does that definition differ from the definition used by the USDA? And which of the definitions makes more sense to you?
  • Why do you think all of the biggest food deserts seem to be out west, how is that possible?

Answer these questions using our Multi-Subject, or News Databases.
