Accessiblility

All residents need access to affordable, healthy, and culturally appropriate food. Food is physically available to individuals, who have the resources to grow or buy and prepare it. The ability of individuals to access food is directly related to their level of income and/ or access to resources to produce food, the price of food, and the availability of a sufficient supply of food for all people.

Food Resources

Food resources are government-, charity-, or community-supported programs and services that provide access to food and related resources to community members.
- Community food resources: meal delivery services; community kitchens
- Charitable food services: free and low-cost meals and shelters with meals; food banks and food distribution centers (unprepared food or food hampers)
- Government food programs: funding mechanisms and delivery through public institutions that facilitate access, build capacity, and address needs and gaps fairly.
