Access to Healthy Food and Why It Matters: A Review of the Research

The new report reviews research reaffirming that access to healthy food is a critical component of healthy, thriving communities. The report reviews more than 170 studies, published between 2010 and 2013, in an attempt to synthesize and present the latest research on healthy food access and identify where gaps may still exist since the publication of the first groundbreaking 2010 report, The Grocery Gap: Who Has Access to Healthy Food and Why It Matters.
