Portfolio: Food Security
Increasing food access in a geographically and economically diverse area like Jefferson County isn’t as easy as it may seem. That’s why we’re funding efforts to build a blueprint with partners from Aging Dynamics and Jeffco Food Policy Council. Now, using an easy -to-understand interactive Food System Map, you can see which areas in our community lack access to healthy, affordable food. You can also find important local resources, such as community gardens and food pantries.
