Walk into almost any corner store and you'll find the cost of a bottle of soda is likely less than a bottle of water. It's a strange conundrum that speaks to the economic conditions that create challenges for so many communities. The simple fact of this price difference has an impact on public health, for instance, but the price of soda is not an anomaly. Just as soft drinks are more accessible than bottled water, the unhealthy food options available in many challenged neighborhoods are often easier to access than fresh produce, for instance, or just about any other more healthy alternative.

For the last several months, students from Cleveland State University and Cuyahoga Community College have been collaborating to present a mini-symposium on these related topics. Join the City Club for our first ever College Forum, as students engage with leaders from their institutions and throughout the community to talk about economics, nutrition, urban planning, and how these issues are shaping Cleveland's future.
