It is amazing how other people think it cost nothing to eat healthy! They are usually the ones from affluent neighborhood parents with plenty of money usually white families and they do not live in poor neighborhoods were the local bodega usually has junk food staring at your face as soon as you walk in the store and not fruits and vegetables like a many stores I have seen and grew in a poor neighbor since I am African American and no this first hand not just from talk like a log of people...

Frankly there aren't that many fresh food markets in our area and besides the food is far more expensive in our book.

the cost of organic foods should NOT be a priority......our health is worth it AND it is way cheaper than health care!

It is very difficult and expensive to find all fresh foods unless you go to a special place and there aren't that many in our area.

Healthy food should be subsidized and made freely available all over the globe.Processed food manufacturing modernized and continuously monitored to produce quality products..

I think that anything that helps a community be a better one is always a good cause & in helping others we also find we are helped in some way, just in the act of doing good for others. Teaching healthy eating habits & how to cook healthy food & budget food, will help people in many ways, one of them being a more healthy weight, less medical bills & Dr's visits, more energy & positivity because one feels good etc etc.

I do think the organic foods are very expensive - the fruit and veg normally is fine and the competition now between supermarkets as helped to cut costs down - however, i think the health foods are expensive and the s.markets to increase their price here - it would help if it were less.

We certainly don't stop eating healthily because it's costly, we just vary our meals; pasta with salads, beans with rice, less and less meats, more vegetables and fruits in variety as well. Making our own, instead of packaged. Making portions less as well.
