Food Security

York Road Community members attend Govanstown Farmers Market

York Road Initiative works with residents to research and develop sustainable models for food access and security in the Govans area.

  • Operate Govanstowne Farmers’ Market, providing affordable access to fresh produce and whole foods every summer since 2010
  • 2013 Food Access Survey, a research project engaging 200 neighbors to learn their food needs
  • Implement FreshCrate, a partnership between three, independent corner stores and Loyola’s Parkhurst Dining Services to provide competitively priced produce to address year-round food insecurity
