Characterized by light green stems that can be purple at the lower part and often unbranched, giving rise to heart-shaped leaflets. Yellow woodsorrel's leaflets help distinguish it from clover leaves, which are not heart-shaped but look similar otherwise.

Fresh, healthy foods can be difficult to find in rural West Virginia communities. This isn’t only evident at the dinner table, its impact shows up at the doctor’s office, too.

One in four of the state’s rural residents is food insecure, and with the recent public health crisis, it is anticipated that more West Virginians will not have reliable access to food. Food insecurity directly affects the state’s health: 40 percent of West Virginians are obese, 16 percent have diabetes and 13 percent have cardiovascular disease.
