Examining Disparities in Food Access and Enhancing the Food Security of Underserved Populations in Michigan (FAiM)
We will conduct in-depth interviews with a stratified (by type of food outlet) sample of food retailers in 18 towns and cities in Michigan. Retailers will be found using Michigan Department of Human Services (MDHS) and Michigan Department of Agriculture databases. The 2010 Census will be used to analyze census block group (CBG) data to determine the proximity-weighted racial composition of neighborhoods as well as the level of segregation and poverty in neighborhoods. Strategies identified for enhancing food security of underserved populations in the state will be shared at state and local levels.
