Healthy Food and Community Change in NYC
Poverty and an unhealthy diet are interrelated. The Healthy Food and Community Change in NYC infographic explores NYC poverty and how New Yorkers along with strong partnerships can build access to healthy foods. The first part of the infographic provides statistics on diet related disease prevalence in poor neighborhoods and the types of food that poor residents are able to buy. The remainder of the infographic depicts why the healthy food issue is so complex, how to address the issue, like putting “green carts” on the corners, and various partnerships that will be implemented over the coming years to focus on nutrition and community health-related projects.
