Abstract This research study is an assessment of access to healthy food in Prince George's County. It identifies issues related to demand and supply of healthy food through surveys of food retailers, and surveys and focus group discussions with consumers. It includes research findings on areas with limited access to healthy food, food-health connection, school meals, and food insecurity in the County. Based on the study findings and national and international promising practices, policy recommendations are provided for creating ahealthy, equitable, and sustainable food system that ensures every Prince Georgian has access to nutritious, affordable, sustainably grown, safe, and culturally appropriate food.
