One-in-four Baltimoreans live in a so-called, “food desert,” areas where healthy food availability is low, according to a joint report by the City of Baltimore and Johns Hopkins. And not surprisingly most of those people are Black and poor.

That important story and more coming up this evening on AFRO’s First Edition with Sean Yoes.
