Advocacy group concerned about food insecurity in Savannah wants new policies enacted

Armand Turner said there have been times in his life that he hasn’t had food on the table.

“I come from a background of low-income African-American population,” Turner said.

That’s why he decided to join the local advocacy group Healthy Savannah, which aims to create and enact new policies that will address food insecurity and equity. Turner is the deputy director of the group.

Turner said more than 35,000 people in Savannah live more than a mile away from the nearest grocery store. That means access to nutritious choices could be difficult for some. Things like transportation, affordability, and location can play a role.
