Introducing the Healthy Food Access Portal, the nation’s first website dedicated to improving and promoting healthy food retail
The Food Trust and our partners PolicyLink and The Reinvestment Fund invite you to visit the new Healthy Food Access Portal!
The new portal connects community leaders, healthy food retailers, policymakers and advocates to an extensive array of resources and strategies to improve and increase access to healthy food retail (including supermarkets, corner stores, farmers’ markets and mobile produce trucks) in underserved communities. With funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the three organizations created the nation’s first comprehensive website and learning community designed to promote healthy food retail efforts in regions across the country.
There will also be an accompanying introductory webinar, Knowing the Basics: Food Access 101, next week. The webinar will discuss the problem of healthy food access and the innovative solutions being developed to address the issue. Designed as an introduction to the field of healthy food access, the webinar will also feature a discussion on how to make the case for healthy food retail solutions in local communities.
