Abstract

This comparative case study explores the problems of food deserts in Youngstown, Ohio and their work to eradicate them. This case compares four different food justice groups and hypothesizes that successful food justice groups will embodied a working class-culture perspective and will have to cooperate with the state and avoid cooption. The case concluded that this model has strong analytical power and that future research should be conducted on these issues because of a lack of research.
