Food Access Recommendations



Provide support for grassroots, neighborhood-based alternative economic programs like Fresh Stop Market to expand their services.


Continue the community conversations / dinners regarding needs for improving access to fresh and healthy foods. 


Determine methods to increase locations with affordable, fresh, and healthy food options, as well as examine methods to increase transportation access to locations that already have these options.


Encourage neighborhood restaurants to put low-cost healthy food options on their menus, and create and carry affordable, pre-prepared “fresh-to-go” meals.


Create incentives for new and existing businesses to hire long-term and low-income neighborhood residents.


Encourage policies to better allow food to be grown in front-yards and allow the sale of produce from community gardens.
