Howard County, Maryland is the third richest county in the United States with a median household income of $108,844 (Sawe, 2016). We are at the heart of the most educated, highest income Combined Statistical Area in the U.S (The Brookings Institution, 2016). The Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area has six of the top ten highest income counties in America (United States Census Bureau, 2013).
For all this prosperity, one in every eight households in Maryland has gone hungry in a recent year (Kelvey, 2014).
In the face of such need, I chose to document the bounty that is available to the residents of my neighborhood. There are six supermarkets within a two-mile radius of my home. We live amid an embarrassment of choices; the shelves seemingly stretch endlessly with plenty—fruits, vegetables, meats, cakes, pastries, candy, soda, frozen foods and much more.
