Im trying to do a fair bit of reconnaissance so I can have some clue of where to look when I get there.

And thanks for everyones input. Any opinions and ideas are welcome.
The biggest food desert at the moment is in Kansas City, Kansas. Stores are more spread out in the less-appealing areas of Kansas City, Missouri, but you shouldn't have a problem finding one.

Common grocery stores are HyVee, Price Chopper, Sun Fresh, Apple Market and Aldi. A new Aldi location is scheduled for 39th and Prospect in the next year.

KC is heavily redeveloping East of Troost to 71 Highway. I read in the KC Star that a developer is building 300 brand new apartments at Armor and Troost also developing commercial shopping. Really trying to change the image of "East of Troost". I'm not sure how/why Troost, Paseo, etc. got that reputation, but I've lived in the area for all my life and really never had a problem. At least no more than any other areas of KC.

Come on seriously you lose credibility with that post. Yes that church group has established community gardens and is also trying to create a community center which is all good but the Lykins neighborhood is still one of the most dangerous zips in all of KC. I grew up and live a minute away from Lykins. Robberies, prostitution, burglaries and vandalism are pretty common. All of the northeast neighborhoods are still pretty sketchy (including Pendelton Heights) and I would never advise someone to move there unless I knew they had an urban background and could handle seeing some type of crime on almost a daily basis.
