In July, 2011, Michelle Obama rolled out a plan to bring fresh, healthy to low income communities across the United States. The plan is to partner with major food retailers like Walmart to bring affordable, healthy food to neighborhoods that have come to be known as food deserts. But food justice activists are calling for solutions that come from communities, not from corporations.
