When we think about what it takes to live healthy, having easy access to nutritious food is critical.

Unfortunately, in many communities across America, unhealthy food abounds while affordable, healthy options remain limited.

For millions of households, a lack of reliable access to healthy food hinders children's growth and development, and increases risk for obesity and challenges to health and well-being throughout life. This is especially true in low-income communities in inner-city and rural areas, where convenience stores and fast-food restaurants are widespread but major grocery stores are often scarce.

This collection includes research, resources, and stories for communities that are working to increase access to affordable, healthy food for everyone.
