According to a report, more than 800,000 Kansans don’t have access to fresh, affordable food. And that void can leave those people less healthy. Some communities are experimenting with ways to make nutritious food easier to find. Madeline Fox, of the Kansas News Service, takes us to Wyandotte County, where a group is experimenting with a grocery store that comes to its shoppers.
