From Hunger-Free Worcester

Please complete this survey to inform the Massachusetts Food System Plan!

Every voice must be heard as we develop solutions to inadequate access to healthy food.

It is available in English and Spanish.

If you do complete this survey, please take into account the role that wages play in access to food. Minimum wage/low-wage jobs don’t support access to healthy food.  Healthy food isn’t expensive; unhealthy food is cheap and jobs don’t pay enough.

The Food Access, Security and Health Survey link:


The Massachusetts Food System Plan will emphasize state-level recommendations to strengthen our food system.

The Plan will identify strategies to “reduce hunger and food insecurity” and “increase the availability of fresh, healthy food to all residents” among other goals.

We are seeking your insight into the challenges and solutions that you see with respect to obtaining healthy food and/or food that is produced locally (within Massachusetts or New England).  Your responses will help us develop recommendations to be included in the Massachusetts Food System Plan, which will come out in early 2016.

The survey will be open until Friday, February 27, 2015.

If you know of other people who are working on this topic and would have information to share, please feel free to send them the survey invitation and link.
