Food Access Mapping in Haliburton County

This session will share the findings of a Food Access Mapping report. The report was  a community effort as a result of Community Food Assessment conducted in Haliburton County. The purpose of the assessment was to conduct an inventory of food access points in Haliburton County, including the creation of maps to support visual analyses and information sharing. These maps are intended to assist with representing baseline information about food access points and help inform long-term planning and actions that support community food security.
