Initially developed as a useful tool to help inform how food system initiatives are planned, implemented, and evaluated, the map now includes tools to fight food insecurity in the wake of COVID-19.

In addition to COVID food resources, the map also includes information on food retail locations, SNAP Farmers Markets, and nutrition assistance programs, in addition to demographic and health data of local populations.
