Economic Development and Redevelopment

Economic Development and Redevelopment

A toolkit to help improve access to healthy foods

This toolkit is designed for nutrition and other public health advocates who need additional resources, beyond zoning and general plan revisions, to improve the food access in low-income neighborhoods.

It provides a fundamental, introductory understanding of the economic development and redevelopment tools available, their use, and how to effectively participate in decisions about their use.

The guide was produced in partnership with the California Department of Health Services through the California Nutrition Network for Healthy, Active Families.
