Mapping Food Access as Part of a Statewide Food Strategy


This session will showcase a GIS-based food access tool that is part of Rhode Island’s leading-edge State Food Strategy.  The map will allow practitioners, officials, and advocates to develop stories about how different neighborhoods experience shopping for and eating food on a day to day basis.  Speakers will provide examples of how the map can be used to effectively set the stage for policy reform and talk about its future role in the broader food movement in Rhode Island.  The project was funded through the American Planning Association’s Planners4Health initiative and is led by the local APA Chapter and the Rhode Island Food Policy Council.
