Overview URBANITE PROJECT 2012: HEALTHY FOOD CHALLENGE

This exhibition of submissions represents individual or group responses to the Healthy Food Challenge.  Urbanite Project 2012: Healthy Food Challenge called for creative, innovative, non-traditional ideas that address one or more of the barriers to affordable, healthy food for Baltimore City residents living in neighborhood food deserts. Food deserts, as defined by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, are residential block groups more than a quarter-mile from a major supermarket and where 40 percent of the population’s household income is below $25,000. The barriers are varied and numerous—transportation, a lack of healthy food at nearby stores, education, food preparation, and time, among other factors, all contribute to the problem.  In addition to juried voting, the public is also invited to vote on submitted proposals. 

Wed Jul 11, 6-8pm — Film screening of "Weight of the Nation" - an HBO produced film sponsored by Kaiser.
