2020 Healthy Food Access Assessment and Recommendations

Ensuring everyone has access to healthy food is the most important thing we can do to support our community's health and well-being. 

As part of a legacy project funded by Community Health Endowment of Lincoln, Community Action has completed a report to assess the current state of access to healthy food in Lincoln and explore opportunities for future development. The report provides information about the Healthy Food Access Program, a collaboration between Community Action and Food Bank of Lincoln; assesses community needs; and provides recommendations to further expand access to healthy food in Lincoln.
