Mayors Innovation Project & Healthy Babies Bright Futures. How Salt Lake City Increased Equitable Access to Healthier Foods for Kids.
Salt Lake City is tackling issues of fresh and healthy food availability via the Resident Food Equity Advisors. Its goal is to help create an equitable community food system that increases access to healthy, organic, and culturally relevant foods for historically underrepresented and underserved communities. Over the course of a year, the Advisors worked in partnership with City staff to voice their concerns and help shape the City’s food policy agenda.
