Healthy food is practically unattainable to low-income eaters, according to two recent articles. “Achieving sustainability will mean that prices will have to go up,” says a global produce buyer for Whole Foods Market on Gourmet.com. Affluent people are healthier precisely because they have access to a better diet, says a report parsed by the Atlantic. It might be amusing when Top Chef contestants have to make a meal from a convenience store, but many impoverished families do just that.
