Think teens only crave burgers and fries? Follow a group of South L.A. teens who navigate the daily challenges of living in a food desert.  In food deserts—areas defined as low income with little access to supermarkets—a burger is often cheaper than buying lettuce for a salad. And in a neighborhood where many families can only afford staples like bread, milk and eggs, finding unprocessed produce can be a challenge since the only markets are corner liquor stores where produce can be poor quality and overpriced. Watch as these L.A. teens share what it’s really like living in a food desert.

Visit DrinkGoodDoGood.com to learn how Naked Juice and Wholesome Wave are working together to improve access to fresh produce in food deserts.
