Today (WED) is being marked as Food Day in many communities nationwide. This annual event, created by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, is part of a concerted national and local effort to make healthy foods more widely available, particularly in low-income areas.

Elana Gordon reports from Kansas City, Kansas, for Harvest Public Media.
