USDA: There are no food deserts in Ward 4
Ward 4: Not a food desert.
The USDA has released this handy tool for locating "food deserts" across the country. Enter an address, zoom in/out, and you'll see designated food deserts shaded in pink.
I took a screenshot of the whole city. Notice that there are no food deserts in all of Ward 4, according to this tool. Prince George's County is more food-deserty than the District.
