Do you think that Alabama State University (ASU) (OR your hometown) is a “food desert?” Some Background Information: IN her speech “Remarks to the NAACP” former First Lady Michelle Obama discusses certain roadblocks that families and children are facing, regarding the ability to eat healthy and live healthy lifestyles, ESPECIALLY African American families. She described how many families live in “food deserts.” These “deserts” are neighborhoods without quality grocery stores that offer access to fresh, healthy foods at affordable prices. As a result, families have to depend on buying unhealthy food from convenience stores instead. There are few opportunities for exercise and fresh air (no playgrounds, or it is too dangerous to go outside). Also, the schools that are located in these “deserts” often don’t offer things healthy lunch menus, recess or gym programs. What you have to do for this assignment (picking a topic to write about): For this assignment, I want you to write a 3-4 page essay (DOUBLE SPACED!) about why you think (or don’t think) ASU OR your own hometown is a food desert. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, you may choose to either write about your experiences with your experiences from your hometown (especially IF you are currently living at home!) What you have to do for this assignment (developing your ideas into a well written 5 paragraph essay): Pick three examples to prove your point, and write in as much detail about all of these examples that you bring up. (SHOW, DON’T TELL!) Each example should be a new paragraph in your essay! For instance, you can write about the quality of the meals in the dining hall, the fast food restaurants in the student union, the lack of grocery stores, the school gym, etc. Whatever you do, BE CREATIVE! You will be graded on the CONTENT of your essay (your 3 points, and the details that you use to bring these points to life), and the ORGANIZATION of your essay (spelling, grammar, etc.) Your essay should contain an introduction, an underlined thesis statement (a main idea that lists the 3 examples that you will talk about), a body and a conclusion. Remember to start a new paragraph for each different topic that you talk about (a new paragraph for each different example about how ASU is or is not a food desert.) Your conclusion should do more than just sum up your paper. Instead, you want to leave your readers with some food for thought. You want to be creative and original up until the very end. In your conclusion, you should write about the changes you wish would happen for healthier eating in Titus, Alabama. What would you change about the food options, or the exercise options, if you could? Express these ideas in your conclusion. I ATTACHED MY OUTLINE!
