An initiative called the Food Justice Campaign is putting pressure on the government to give subsidies to grocers in low-income areas so that they can stock and sell more fresh fruit and vegetables. It’s being launched by plant-based burger joint Slutty Vegan and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). “I see us in an inner-city community tapping into the issue of food insecurity and food injustice and doing a call to action to these government corporations and saying put the money into vegan spaces,” said Slutty Vegan owner Pinky Cole. A study by PETA found more than 35 food deserts in the metropolitan Atlanta area and that one in eight Georgia residents has experienced food insecurity at some point. theatlantavoice.com
