Abstract

The Morris Healthy Eating Community Food Assessment documents an engaged and enthusiastic community ready for greater access to affordable fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods. A yearlong comprehensive community food assessment shows: college students and community members with an interest in better health and in eating healthy foods; abundant community food and health resources; some barriers to healthy eating; a host of opportunities to provide great access to affordable healthy foods. The report summarizes the work of the Morris Healthy Eating team since its founding in 2009. Its recommendations offer a map to a healthier future for the University of Minnesota, Morris, the city of Morris, and Stevens County.
