About this Toolkit
The Rural Food Access Toolkit was first published on 2/13/18.
Toolkits are developed based on a review of FORHP grantees' applications, foundation-funded projects, and an extensive literature review, to identify evidence-based and promising models. Programs featured in the toolkit are interviewed to provide insights about their work and guidance for other rural communities interested in undertaking a similar project.
This toolkit was produced by the University of Minnesota Rural Health Research Center in collaboration with the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis and the Rural Health Information Hub (RHIhub).
Contributors from the University of Minnesota Rural Health Research Center include Amanda Corbett, Audrey Anglin, Alex Evenson, and Ira Moscovice.
