The Neighbors Are Hungry...

Have you ever wondered about your "food environment"?  Take a look at the USDA's newly launched "Your Food Environment Atlas" .  The atlas lets you select a US county and view statistics ranging from number of grocery stores in the county to the per capita consumption of meat and soda.  There's a lot of interesting data here.  Check it out and let me know what you think!



  1. That is very interesting - thank you so much for letting me know about it! ;)

  2. Wow, I am horrified by most of what I see: like such high low income preschool obesity rates and the soda and fast food maps. The paucity of farm to school programs is depressing. Thanks for sharing such a great resource!

    Check out my website as a fellow paleo-blogger and CrossFitter! Nice to know there are so many of us! :)
