Description/Abstract

This paper outlines the research agenda of the food deserts in British Cities project, and reports findings from a set of qualitative focus group studies conducted following a major retail provision intervention in a low-income, deprived area of Leeds. It explores the impacts of the transformation of physical access to full-range retailing in the area, and assesses the views of the residents who had switched their main food source as a result of the intervention compared to those who had not. Finally, it interrogates residents' perceptions of the impact (if any) of the intervention on their food consumption habits and their potential to eat a more healthy diet.
