Food for Every Child: The Need for Healthy Food Retail in the Greater Dallas Area
Dallas must address the significant need for fresh food resources in many of its neighborhoods. Several factors have led supermarkets to disinvest from lower-income communities, contributing to a public health crisis.
CHILDREN AT RISK, a local research and advocacy group, and The Food Trust, a nationally recognized nonprofit, issued Food for Every Child: The Need for Healthy Food Retail in the Greater Dallas Area to ensure that all children and their families live in communities that have access to healthy and affordable food. This goal can be achieved by encouraging the development and expansion of healthy food retail outlets in underserved communities throughout Dallas.
