If you're living in a food desert, move!

Regarding “Hungry for an oasis: Several pockets of metro area fit federal definition of food desert” (News, June 9): Once upon a time my wife and I lived in Clayton, Kan., which is a food desert. It was a 30-minute drive to the nearest grocery store. We made the decision that Clayton wasn’t the place for us. And, like the Joad family, we moved to where we could find work, food and opportunity. If you’re living in a food desert, move! I feel no guilt for the inconveniences of the choices others have made. By the way, rice (brown and wild), dry beans and canned greens (such as collards, spinach, kraut) are always in season!
