Our Mission is Food Equity

Because everyone in every zip code should be able to find and afford good food.

A family shops for food together For one in six Americans, healthy food is too expensive, too far away, or both. But we should all have access to good food - food that is affordable, sustainable, nutritious, high-quality, and culturally connected.

How we can achieve food equity

The Food Equity Model is made up of a healthy food supply; access to good food; and awareness, knowledge and skills Our programs focus on the three pillars that ensure a strong foundation for food equity:

  1. A healthy food supply.
  2. Access to good food in all communities.
  3. Empowered communities with the knowledge and skills to select and quickly prepare good food.

How we’re making a difference

PHA is working for a better food future by driving long-term positive change for the communities that need it most. We’re using a data-driven approach to propel food equity forward by innovating good food access, investing in communities, and empowering people.

That’s why we’ve committed to:

  • Providing 100 million servings of good food to food-insecure families by 2025.
  • Mapping 1,000 new and existing good food access points to help meaningfully shift the food supply available in under-resourced communities across the country.
  • Moving conversations around community ownership of food assets and production forward so that our work alongside communities drives long-lasting improvements.
