Retail Food Gaps and Opportunities in Cuyahoga County

Cuyahoga County Planning Commission, Cuyahoga County Board of Health, OSU Extension, and the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Food Policy Coalition worked in partnership to develop an updated assessment of the food retail environment in Cuyahoga County.  Building off of the food retail assessment led by County Planning Commission in 2008, this presentation released in December 2011 contains several maps that demonstrate potential relationships between poverty and income, transportation access and car ownership, and food retail locations. The report also identifies low access areas for food retail within Cuyahoga County.  This presentation is accompanied by a summary of the findings, Cuyahoga County Assessment: Access to Supermarkets.
