NEW Blog: Survey Guiding Local Food Action

New Jersey Health Initiatives is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. NJHI is dedicated to supporting innovations and driving conversations to build healthier New Jersey communities.

Trenton Health Team is proud of NJHI support through the Upstream Action Acceleration grant, as well as the Communities Moving to Action grant. Our latest NJHI blogs highlight the link between the COVID-19 pandemic,  a growing need for emergency food and the community’s effort to respond.

Our latest NJHI blog, City-Wide Survey to Guide Food Action in Trenton, details our work with Rider University to create the Trenton Food Needs Survey to guide local response to hunger in our community.

Data from the survey help the Trenton Food Stakeholders improve the availability of free food resources in the community.

The survey was made widely available via social media, email, and text in late 2020. In addition, THT is working with community partners actively engaged in fighting food insecurity to distribute hard copy versions of the survey across the city to those without internet access.
