Event description

Description

Last November, SAVI used recent, local data to improve on food access measures, and found that an estimated 200,000 Indianapolis residents live in low-income neighborhoods with low food access. This fall’s program will build upon that measure to create a deeper analysis of the food access in Indianapolis.

The Fall 2019 Community Trends report will look at food access from different perspectives: time, population, transportation modes such as walking and transit, and food systems. This will allow us to see how different places and populations in Indianapolis:

  • have been affected by store closures in recent years
  • experience little to no access to fresh produce due to lack of a car
  • have greater food access for those in need via secondary food outlets (e.g. convenience stores) and emergency resources (e.g. food pantries)
