Food for Every Child: The Need for Healthy Food Financing in Alabama
Alabama must address the significant need for supermarkets and other fresh food resources in many of its communities.

The Food Trust, a nationally recognized nonprofit, issued Food for Every Child: The Need for Healthy Food Financing in Alabama to document these findings and to ensure that Alabama’s 1.2 million children and their families live in communities that have access to healthy and affordable food.1 This report demonstrates the need for a statewide financing program to encourage healthy food retail development in Alabama.
