Local Level Policy Initiatives

Access to healthy food plays a key role in creating complete communities where everyone has the chance to be happy and healthy. From making it more difficult for children to study in school to making people sacrifice other important purchases like medications, food insecurity impacts all aspects of people’s lives. Both food insecurity and unhealthy diets increase the risk of many chronic health conditions and stress. Sprawling land use patterns and strict separation of uses have contributed to creating built environments that make it difficult for people to access healthy food. The following Adobe Spark Page highlights how Delaware local governments can improve access to healthy food through comprehensive plans and community design, policies and regulatory tools, and local partnerships.
