"My Daughter Does Not Know How to Make the Chappati": Understanding Food Access among African Immigrants in Lewiston, Maine
Jacobus, Michelle Vazquez; Ahmed, Hussein; Jalali, Reza
Metropolitan Universities, v23 n3 p79-94 Mar 2013
Food access for Maine's growing African refugee population reflects multiple levels of general access to society. To better understand the challenges and opportunities unique to this community, a multidisciplinary team of students, faculty, and community partners integrated the expertise of local residents with the results of a food assessment of Lewiston, Maine, to discuss the complexity of food access issues for African immigrants. Policy implications and recommendations deriving from this assessment are considered for Lewiston as well as other similar metropolitan areas.
