CLF Publishes First Comprehensive Report on the Baltimore City Food Environment
Jan 01, 2010
With the support of the Center for a Livable Future, editors Stephen A. Haering, MD, MPH, and Manuel Franco, MD, PhD, collaborated with researchers, residents, community organizations, and business owners to examine nearly every food store within the City of Baltimore. The research studies in this report demonstrate that the quality of the food environment in Baltimore neighborhoods can be predicted by the predominant racial and socioeconomic categories in census tracts. Alongside research, case reports, and recommended interventions to improve the food environment, The Baltimore City Food Environment report features maps from CLF’s GIS Maryland Food System Mapping Project.
