Greening Greater Racine, an environmental group looking to address several environmental issues in the community, is hosting a meeting about the food issues people have in accessing healthy food, especially those in low-income neighborhoods.

The meeting will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Fellowship of Christian Believers Church, 703 Washington Ave.

“This meeting is for all members of the community interested in making a difference in our local food system and making sure all people have access to healthy food, especially in food desert areas,” said David Rhoads.
