Can You Pass the Healthy Food Access Quiz?

Everyone deserves access to the kinds of foods that ensure a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. But did you know that millions of Americans struggle to find healthy, affordable food in their neighborhood? Research shows you are where you eat and that the neighborhood you live in has a profound impact on your food choices. In partnership with PolicyLink, The Food Trust published Access to Healthy Food and Why It Matters: A Review of the Research, a report that provides an up-to-date review of the research on healthy food access. This large volume of new research demonstrates that improving healthy food access in low-income communities and communities of color is an urgent need.
