Fresh Food Access Plan: Lehigh Valley Local Food Economy

A part of the Lehigh Valley Local Food Economy Assessment Report, this Access Plan aims to identify specific strategies to be implemented in the Lehigh Valley.

Sustainability Fact: if everyone in the Lehigh Valley spent $10 a day on locally produced food, $100 million dollars of economic activity would be generated annually within the Valley. Today, there are eight areas in the Lehigh Valley that have limited access to fresh food. This report highlights programs and projects implemented by local governments and private entities to create change in the food economy of the Lehigh Valley. The Fresh Food Access Plan includes 45 strategies for policy, systemic and individual changes that can assure the availability of fresh, healthy, local and culturally appropriate food across the Lehigh Valley.
