Our current food system is not equitably feeding our people, supporting our communities, or ensuring the protection of our soil and water resources. In the city of St. Louis, 57% of residents live in communities that have low household incomes and live more than ½ mile from the nearest grocery store. The target of the Food Access working group is by 2027, reduce by half the number of healthy food priority areas from a 2018 baseline.
1. Learn about local efforts to better define ‘food deserts’ as ‘healthy food priority areas.’
2. Learn about local programs to increase access to healthy foods.
3. Community engagement regarding accessing and preparing healthy foods.
