At any rate I can guess what fucking James Bovard wrote without even reading it tl;dr he's  being a faggot and simply restated the scope of the data

You're also forgetting the existence of food deserts in the United States.

also no one was arguing they're starving to death wtf

VR brings up a point a lot of suburbanites and county club liberals and neocons have no experience with.

A 'food desert" is a neighborhood with sparse or no public transit and no place to grocery shop without a vehicle trip. If the area does have stores, it is all either very overpriced middle eastern owned stores that have limited opening hours, very limited offerings, and are marked up sometimes 400 percent. There may be a fast food place or two at the intersection of the closest main artery heading into the neighborhood and connecting other neighborhoods, but that is it.

You are not necessarily starving. But, the food available is expensive, high in fat and cholesterol and while very filling is fattening and can lead a number of bad stuff if eaten over a long period of time. 

Yes, you can just make plans and go on one big supply run if you have a car, get one of those old lady carts and spend all day on the bus, or just pay up on an expensive cab. But, if you are working some low paying, tiring job. Hell that. A Wally world run 3 neighborhoods over takes all the check and half your day off! Just go to Manuel's and get some cheap beer and fried stuff and cigs. Rest.
