Planners4Health: Visualizing Food Access in Rhode Island
Under the Planners4Health grant program, APA RI partnered with the Rhode Island Food Policy Council (RIFPC) and the State’s Director of Food Strategy to develop an interactive map-based food access tool and an interactive Story Map. The Story Map introduces people to the key concepts of food access and food security while walking them through the data layers and functions of the map. Map development and other technical aspect of the project were led by the outstanding efforts of food system consultant Karen Karp & Partners (KK&P).
