I encountered a new term over the weekend:  a food desert.  As a "foodie" who knows his slurry from a mirepoix - and as a follower of news/current events/economics,  I was surprised that I had never heard the phrase before.

It turns out that a food desert is a an area in an industrialized part of the world where access to affordable and nutritious foods are limited.  In the U.S., these would represent areas where access to grocery stores or supermarkets is limited by distance and availability.
