CED-HFFI Grantee Highlights

Highlights from Access to Healthy Food and Why it Matters, a November 2013 report from PolicyLink and The Food Trust:
  • Accessing healthy food remains a challenge for many families, especially those living in low-income neighborhoods, communities of color, and rural areas.
  • Living closer to healthy food retail is associated with better eating habits and decreased risk for obesity and diet-related diseases.
  • Healthy food retail stimulates economic activity.
