The Lexington
   Community Food
              Assessment

 

 

The Lexington Community Food Assessment is on-going integrated research, teaching and outreach project, which aims to examine and address key challenges Lexington residents face in accessing nutritionally and culturally adequate food at affordable price.  The project was originated by Dr. Patrick Mooney (Sociology) in his special topics course, SOC 350: Food Security in the Fall of 2004.  Since then, under the supervision of Dr. Keiko Tanaka (Community & Leadership Development/ Sociology) students from various levels have participated in the effort to collect data.  Moreover, this project has helped us build stronger collaborative relationships with various community organizations as project partners to update the project design and develop outreach tools.  We hope that the outcome of this project will play an important role in shaping future activities of the many community organizations working on issues of food security, sustainable agriculture, and local food economies in Lexington and/or the Bluegrass Region.
