A study published in the journal Spatial and Spatio-temporal Epidemiology investigates whether housing discrimination in Baltimore, MD, has led to inequitable food access. Among its findings, the study suggests that blockbusting, redlining, and gentrification each had different effects on food access in Baltimore. Blockbusting, for example, was found to be associated with greater barriers to food access, while redlining and gentrification were found to be associated with better food access. This impact on formerly redlined neighborhoods is attributed to redevelopment and gentrification. The study also finds that white neighborhoods have greater food access.
