Please join us for an oversight hearing on the impact of food insecurity and inequitable access to nutritious food on public health.

Experts on the food system and its impact on public health will discuss how state, federal, and non-profit programs work together to improve the health of the Commonwealth. Topics will include food as medicine, food deserts and healthy food access, the role of agriculture in public health, and school food programming.

The hearing will be followed by a local farm tour.
