What is the Good Food Access Indicator?
The Good Food Access Indicator is a composite score that provides an assessment of both access and quality of local food on US native land. This indicator is the first to provide nationwide comparative data on food access AND on local food production. Contrary to existing nationwide measures that usually only focus on the lack of access to food, this indicator 1) provides a positive measure that highlights improvement on food access and 2) includes an innovative estimate of the quality of locally-produced fresh food.
