    The growing street food sector in low-income countries offers easy access to inexpensive food as well as new job opportunities for urban residents. While this development is positive in many ways, it also presents new public health challenges for the urban population. Safe food hygiene is difficult to practice at street level, and outbreaks of diarrheal diseases have been linked to street food (Rheinländer et al., 2008).

    Therefore, diversity is something I would have to seek for myself. The Preble Street Food Shelter in Portland serves hundreds of poor inhabitants of Greater Portland for every meal. Serving at the food shelter would be the perfect way to get out of Falmouth, serve my community, and experience diversity at the same time.
