Session Description:

Roughly 30 million Americans—about 1 in 10—live in communities without adequate access to healthy food. Over the last decade, increased awareness of this reality has spurred national and local efforts to expand healthy food access, particularly in low-income communities. This webinar session will offer fresh perspectives on understanding and addressing food-access issues. Tune in to hear experts explore questions such as, What do the data show on low- and moderate-income consumers’ needs and behaviors regarding healthy food? What programs and approaches have proven to be most successful? and What factors are most important for addressing this issue over the next five years?
