Community Food Assessment

In 2019, Hastings and Prince Edward Public Health (HPEPH) initiated a Community Food Assessment (CFA) that spanned both Hastings and Prince Edward Counties. The aim of the CFA was to better understand the challenges and opportunities for improving the accessibility, affordability, availability, and adequacy of nutritious foods in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties. Ultimately, HPEPH aims to gain a better understanding of how they can support key partners in their efforts to reduce food insecurity and improve the consumption of fresh and nutritious foods in the community, as well as to determine strategic actions that HPEPH can implement to achieve this.
