links to various white papers and journal articles about a healthy food environment.
"The food environment is
- The physical presence of food that affects a person’s diet,
- A person’s proximity to food store locations,
- The distribution of food stores, food service, and any physical entity by which food may be obtained, or
- A connected system that allows access to food.
The food environment is also known as the community food environment, nutritional food environment, or local food environment. The retail food environment includes the community level (e.g., presence and locations of food stores, markets, or both) and the consumer level (e.g., healthful, affordable foods in stores, in markets, or in both)."
