Building a Healthier Community Through Food Security.
Formally known as the Southeastern MA Food Security Network, the Marion Institute Southcoast Food Policy Council’s mission is to connect, convene, and advocate for local food producers, consumers, and community leaders who seek policy and systems that strengthen our regional food system, improve community health, and eliminate food insecurity.
Do You Eat Food? We Need Your Input!
Take the Consumer Food Preferences + Patterns Survey
This survey is part of a food system assessment of Southeastern Massachusetts, specifically in the counties of Bristol, Norfolk, and Plymouth. We are using this survey to learn how residents get food, find out about food resources, and understand what influences decisions about food. What we learn will inform future policy and programs that support increased food access (availability, affordability, and variety) for all residents and in turn improve health.
The survey takes less than 5 minutes but the data is invaluable in helping us to shape our future efforts.
