In 2012 The Florida Health Department published a study reporting that 250,000 Miami-Dade residents living in low-income neighborhoods have poor supermarket access and have higher then average death rates from diet-related diseases. For known food desert areas like Overtown, creating community urban gardens are a way to change that — and that’s just what the YWCA and Health in the Hood are trying to do.
