KSU initiative to increase access to healthy food

To help improve Kansans’ access to healthy food, the Kansas Health Foundation is launching the $4.2 million Kansas Healthy Food Initiative.

Of that amount, $866,000 is going to Kansas State University’s Center for Engagement and Community Development.

The center will contribute by assessing participating communities’ food systems; offering information on funding for healthy food operations; assisting with addressing distribution needs in the supplier-retailer gap; analyzing and supporting marketing and policy efforts; educating Kansans on how to find, purchase, store and prepare healthy foods; and helping develop strategies for building partnerships to advance healthy food access.
