Richmond City Food Policy Analysis – Report Released

Since 2015, the Institute for Public Health Innovation (IPHI) has worked to use its expertise and experience in food access and health equity to conduct a local food policy analysis and develop policy recommendations to promote equitable access to healthy, affordable, and culturally appropriate foods across Richmond. Recently, the analysis was completed and resulted in the report, Richmond City Food Policy Analysis. The report provides recommendations for the Virginia Department of Health, Richmond City Health District. Guided by the Richmond Food Access and Equity Task Force, the recommendations focus on two aspects of the food access issue ‐‐ urban agriculture and healthy food retail.
