Engineering Students Take on Camden’s Food Desert

Plagued with poverty, homelessness and crime, Camden, NJ has occupied a dark corner of the Garden State. Not only does 38 percent of Camden’s population live below the poverty line, the city has repeatedly ranked as the most dangerous in the nation for the past 10 years. To make matters worse, Camden is a food desert—with only one supermarket available to feed its 80,000 residents.

The Engineers without Borders Camden Project is working to counteract this problem by partnering with local farmers to grow fresh produce on abandoned city lots.
