    New, Improved “Food Desert” Map

    A partnership between the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future and Baltimore City’s Office of Sustainability has resulted in a more comprehensive food desert definition and the release of the new 2012 Baltimore City Food Environment Map. 2012_Food_Environment

    The new Food Environment Map was created as part of the Baltimore Food Policy Initiative to redefine “food desert” and more accurately characterize the food environment. This partnership builds upon the food desert mapping project undertaken by the Center in 2009, through the Maryland Food System Map Project; the original “food desert” map for Baltimore City was based on household income and access to supermarkets.
