Walmart announced today that it will open between 275-300 stores serving the Department of Agriculture (USDA) designated food desert areas between now and 2016. These stores, in both urban and rural areas, will provide access to groceries for more than 800,000 people living in food deserts. 

The announcement continues to fulfill one of the key commitments the company made alongside First Lady Michelle Obama in January 2011 as part of Walmart's healthier food initiative.
