Healthy Food Access Portal

This is the nation’s first comprehensive portal for information about healthy food access in underserved communities.  Created by PolicyLink, The Food Trust, and The Reinvestment Fund with the help of May 8, the new portal has attracted thousands of visitors.  The new portal connects community leaders, healthy food retailers, policymakers, and advocates to an extensive array of resources, strategies, and ideas to improve and increase access to healthy food retail—from grocery stores to corner stores, farmers' markets, and mobile produce trucks—in underserved communities.  Having this information will help the nascent movement to spread and allow those new to the field to learn from experienced practitioners.
