Unequal Access: Transforming Rochester’s Food Deserts

Thursday, September 30, 2021 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Add to calendar

Food deserts are communities with limited access to affordable or high-quality fresh food, either because of inequity in the distribution of grocery stores or lack of transportation to them. These inequities mean healthy food is often unavailable to substantial portions of the community, often low-income people or people of color, leaving them with unhealthy, processed food choices.

The webinar will discuss these food distribution issues as well as potential solutions to solve food inequities. We will also discuss the newly formed Rochester Food Policy Council, created with the mandate of improving access to healthy food in our city.

Speakers:

Camille Verbofsky, Foodlink

Dori Young, Community Member

Mike Bulger, Common Ground Health
