25 million people across the country live in food deserts — or what LA activist Olympia Auset calls food apartheids. People in these deserts have easy access to junk food, liquor stores, and fast-food chains. But as Auset puts it if, "you want an organic avocado or tomato you'll be hard pressed to find it.”
Auset is changing that with SuprMarkt, a pop-up grocery store that makes healthy food choices an affordable, realistic option for underrepresented communities.
Auset talks to us about her personal journey — how becoming vegan helped her see just how few healthy food options her community had.
