Food Access Recommendations

 

1

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


2

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


3

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.


4

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


5

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


6

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