The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

The Food Desert in St. Anthony Park

Hjelseth, Bettsy

A food desert is known as an area that has limited access to affordable and accessible food, and the residents in St. Anthony Park live in one. This research study explored how the food desert in St. Anthony Park affects section 8 housing residents, as well as viable solutions to eliminating it. The researcher mostly used surveying and google research. She found that the residents in St. Anthony Park are negatively affected by living in a food desert, and putting in a food shelf or grocery store would be beneficial to residents of St. Anthony Park.
