In this research, I wanted to look into how ethnic refugee and immigrant communities could gain better access to healthy food options in City Heights, San Diego. I found that these residents have access to an abundance of food nodes that sell fresh vegetables and fruits at low costs. Thus, spatial proximity and relative affordability are not the key food issues. Through analyzing the food cultures of the ethnic communities, I found that much as to do with the residents' knowledge and perceptions about food in their physical built environment and system.
