Welcome to The Highlighter
, loyal readers, and thank you for opening this week’s issue. Today’s lead article
focuses on how we distribute food in our country in a systematically unequal way — and what we need to do to increase access to food. You’ll find out that opening more supermarkets in food deserts
, or closing fast food restaurants in food swamps
, will not be enough.
Also, feel free to explore today’s other excellent pieces, ranging from how corporations weirdly advertise for Pride, how too many college students are homeless, and how a simple hike in the woods can quickly change our life’s trajectory. Please enjoy!
