It’s a fact that the food we consume significantly impacts our health, and in many cases can control and even reverse nutritional diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes. While most people realize this, often those at the most significant risk from nutritional diseases are not able to afford or have access to, the foods they need. For that reason, located in the heart of an area of Atlanta officially recognized as a food desert, The Farm at Good Sam is working to reverse that trend.
