I have a new favorite term: “food swamp”.
You may have heard of “food deserts” – neighborhoods lacking super markets or any opportunity to buy fresh, healthy food. Food swamps are neighborhoods with plenty of food – except it’s all crap. Fatty, salty, nearly nutrition-less food churned out from fast food restaurants and convenience stores.
