Food insecurity is a growing problem in the United States. With a inability or limited ability to acquire a sufficient quantity of food, hunger becomes a problem in many households across the country.
My poster proposes using experimental farms in the state of New Mexico as distribution points to help decrease food insecurity in the state. The GIS analysis to the problem includes making a map with the location of the farms and seeing how their placement in USDA designated food insecure areas will be decreased by using the farms as distribution hubs.
