The solution is within us. Don't ignore the elephant in the room. Make healthy food affordable, and spread the message that we need fewer fast food restaurants,moving into our neighborhoods. Include basic cooking classes to all students in high school. Covering the essentials and none of the perks. So that each student graduating can easily feed themselves without resorting to any prepared dinner mixes or trips to fast food establishments.
