Philadelphia FPAC

Food Access Solutions Meeting

On March 4, FPAC joined the Food Fit Philly Coalition’s quarterly meeting on food access solutions. The meeting, which took place at the Free Library of Philadelphia’s beautiful Culinary Literacy Center, was kicked off with an overview of the findings of the recently-published Walkable Access to Healthy Food in Philadelphia report. The Reinvestment Fund’s Donna Leuchten then gave an overview of particular challenges and market conditions faced by urban food retailers, followed by a “Levers of Change” panel which brought together local leaders from The Food Trust, Philadelphia Commerce Department, and Asociación Puertorriqueños en Marcha. After a break, participants met in small groups to delve deeper into discussions of food retail, SNAP access, and urban farming.
