Geographic overlay of where hungry children are, where grocery stores are, where EBT is taken, USDA SNAP retailers, geographic data, census track information
Mobile farmers market
how to increase the number of places that accept EBT, would it be helpful?, ask affected population what places they wish accepted EBT...
