Food for Kids

Did you know?

Indianapolis ranks as one of the worst cities in the nations for food deserts. An estimated 200,000 residents live in a food desert, and CATC's long-time partner, Shepherd Community Center, serves a zip code that is greatly impacted by this.

What are food deserts?

Food deserts are defined as communities without access to fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and healthy food providers.
