Food Access Advisory Committee Planning Process

As part of the Community Food Security Assessment work, Healthy Hampshire brought together a Food Access Advisory Committee made up of professionals and residents who were dealing with food insecurity over a period of five months to assess current conditions and propose an action plan to reduce barriers to food access in Hampshire County. This Draft Action Plan represents that results of that process and will be used by our partner, Cooley Dickinson Health Care, to inform the food access components of their Community Benefits work. An evaluation of the Food Access Advisory Committee process was conducted in summer 2017.
