Groceries Could Be Priority-Lower than Fancy Sneakers

Asheville has food deserts where people who are low-income find themselves food-insecure. To assist, city council gave a vague go-ahead to staff and the city’s Sustainability Advisory Committee on Energy and the Environment to follow recommendations of the clusters of the Asheville-Buncombe Food Policy Council.

P.S. The above strangeness has syntax-PC. The moral of the story is if you have good intentions with no way of non-coercively seeing them to fruition, create hyphenated expressions of the form noun-adjective, and avoid using modifiers to describe people. This will make you look like you really care, and absolve you from the guilt associated with trying something that has failed under a host of other names.
