The New Haven Food Action Plan reviews the key characterisitics of New Haven's food environment and proposes a number of goals, strategies, and actions that will move New Haven toward a more robust, sustainable, and healthy food system. The plan focuses on three goals:
- improve access to healthy food;
- grow our local food economy; and
- increase food and nutrition education.
The plan also addresses the environmental, economic, and health aspets of sustainability, which are cross-referenced in the food section of the City of New Haven's Sustainability Plan. In addition, there are overarching recommendations that will ensure the successful implementation of the Food Action Plan's goals, while creating sustained leadership and support for them.
