For more than 23 million Americans, a food desert is not a mirage. In these areas, residents often have to rely on corner convenience stores that stock unhealthy snacks rather than fresh fruit because there are no nearby grocery stores.

Not only do food deserts contribute to issues like childhood obesity, diabetes and heart diseases, they also are linked to lost economic and job opportunities in the community.

Help spread the word against food deserts by pledging to a Thunderclap campaign to raise awareness of the problem together. Naked Juice has teamed up with the national nonprofit Wholesome Wave to help improve access to fruits and vegetables in underserved communities throughout America. Help spread the word to support fresh, affordable fruits and vegetables for all.
