The Food Trust
Since 1992, The Food Trust has been working to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food and information to make healthy decisions. The organization combines nutrition education and increased availability of healthy, affordable foods to aid rural and urban communities across the nation.
The Food Trust’s comprehensive approach includes teaching the importance of nutrition to children, their parents and teachers and encouraging youth to become actively engaged in activities promoting the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The organization also aids in improving the availability of healthy and affordable foods across the United States by working with corner store owners to increase healthy offerings, managing farmers markets in areas that lack access to affordable produce and encouraging grocery store development in underserved communities.
