Our project revealed that
existing definitions of food deserts are not sufficiently sensitive to the
nature of grocery travel behavior among rural residents. Our research
suggests that rural residents employ a range of strategies to overcome the challenge of living at some distance from grocery
outlets (from pantry-stocking to trip-chaining) that challenge the current and overly-simplistic assumption of a 10-mile
straightline buffer from a food outlet.
