What We Do
The Create a Healthier Niagara Falls Collaborative & The Healthy Food Healthy People Work Group PRESENTS
The Niagara Falls Local Food Action Plan
The Need for Action
There are many concerns over the quality and variety of food for the residents of Niagara Falls. In fact, several neighborhoods of Niagara Falls are considered food deserts. That means that residents in our city have poor accessibility to affordable, nutritious and fresh food. The 41 items presented in the Niagara Falls Local Food Action Plan are actions we should implement because residents of Niagara Falls want and need better access to nutritious and affordable food for their own comfort and well-being, as well as the longterm health outcomes of the City.
The Niagara Falls Local Food Action Plan is a roadmap for improving the entire food system, from production to consumption, in the city of Niagara Falls. Recommendations may be taken up by organizations or individuals, and will be supported by Healthy Food Healthy People Work Group of the Create a Healthier Niagara Falls Collaborative.
The Framework of the Plan
The framework of the plan is organized into the following 4 PRIORITY AREAS: Agriculture, Healthy Neighborhoods, Education, and Economic Development.
