What is This Community Food Guide About
I will introduce our members. Martin, who is our project manager and doing the observation of the markets. Janic, who is doing post and the picture captions. Elden, who is making the map. Michael, who is doing the intro of our food guide. Last but not least, me(Sarah) I'm doing observation and idea.
Our community guide is about the availability, the accessibility, the cost, and the options around this community. It means if the food is near us, if it’s easy to get food, if it’s expensive, and if their are enough choices for food. And we will talk about the map, observation, ideas that can make the improve food security. About Qingpu, I want to say that this is a place in Shanghai that have smaller population, and this is where we live and where our school is. For map, we will tell where we can buy food and where we can go shopping. For observation, we will tell you WHAT we saw and what we learned when we go to several place to buy food. For ideas, we will talk about our own opinion of how we can improve food security.

Qingpu Food Environment Map
The restaurants are all healthy food because it’s a mall for kids. For transportation, there’s a highway nearby, so even you are far it’s still easy to get there. Its also close with (line 17) so you can get to here even when you are travelling using metro. The most popular restaurant in here is Haidilao, they have hot pot and stuff that is pretty healthy to people. There are a huge parking lot that you can lost your way without the signage.  
Sam’s Club is a huge market with a huge parking lot. There are 2 floors where you can buy things. The second floor is mostly daily necessities and some unhealthy food. The first floor is all healthy food except chocolate and chips. Most health food at the first food is raw meat, raw fish, bread, noodles, cooked meat and fish, vegetables, and juice that has no chemical material in it. Sam’s Club has lots of varieties, but you need a VIP membership card. Even after you have the membership, it’s still very expensive, but there is a reason since it all has good quality. There’s both healthy and unhealthy food. There are many restaurants near it, so after you buy you can just eat nearby. If you are far away from the shop, you’ll need a car. But if you are close, there’s a bike path so you can ride there
This shopping center mostly sells furniture, but there are only a few restaurants, and it’s not healthy too! There are Burger King, a BBQ restaurant that is reported of bad meat, and a restaurant that is reported of using bad oil. The shopping center had these restaurants that cooks normal dishes but they all closed because of the shopping center is almost dying. Now the only choice is Burger King and those unhealthy stuff. Before, there are a big times that is way better. 
Outlets a super big shopping center. Outlets mostly sell clothes and stuff, but there are not too many restaurants. The restaurant in Outlets is all selling unhealthy food, like McDonald’s, KFC, A Little (which is selling unhealthy milk tea, not the normal one), 久YY (unhealthy cooked duck), and Daily Queen. The shopping center don’t have much choice of food. The shopping center don’t have health food and stuff that is good to people.

Availability
In the morning, the supermarkets by the street or in other restaurants will provide breakfast early, which is basically unhealthy food that has lots of oil, like Soybean Milk or Deep-Fried Dough Sticks. But there are still healthy ones, like noodles, steamed stuffed bun, and porridge. Also, with those places including Starbucks opening around Sam’s and Yuanzu Mengshijie, people are able to grab their coffee or breakfast quickly on their way to school or work. In the afternoon, there maybe will be stands that are carts with snacks, like roasted sweet potatoes or flapjack ( a kind of cake that’s baked and stuffed with things inside it, kind of like a pizza, but you have an extra layer of cake on top). For their dinner/lunch, there are still many choices: you can take your pick from hot pot, hamburger, fried rice, or lamian noodles.
This is a photograph of Outlets, you can see a bit of its structure shown here.

Cost
In Qingpu Sam's Club is very popular, Sam's Club has lots of varieties, but you need a VIP membership card. Even after you have the membership, it’s still very expensive, but there is a reason since it all has good quality. There are many restaurants near it, so after you buy you can just eat nearby. If you are far away from the shop, you’ll need a car. But, here's but, in Qingpu, there are also farm markets it is not expensive and it have many healthy food. Sam's Club has meet for 200, but high quality, and farm markets have meet for 50 but don't know if it's high quality or not. So for us, we have the money to go to Sam's but for poor people they can choose farm markets.
This is a photograph of some fresh meat inside Sam’s Club, you can clearly see how its quality is like.

Accessibility
Mige Tiandi and Yuanzu Meng, you can take a taxi/car, bike (if you’re near), also, there’s a subway station nearby (line 18th). For Sam's my suggestion is ride or take a bike that is better because the Cars were lining up in front of Sam's because it is popular so if you live nearby take a walk or bike. For Outlets it is same as Mige Tiange. Mainly, our community has quite a perfect accessibility for anyone, and there are many streets organized really well.
This is the metro for our community, it makes the food accessibility a lot more convenient.
