When local legislators make healthy food access a priority, all residents benefit.The Food Trust

The Tucson City Council in early May voted 7-0 to establish the Commission on Food Security, Heritage, and Economy. The handful of volunteers will advise Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and the council on how to give all Tucsonans access to healthful foods.

Members will come from various organizations, like foods banks, non-profits and universities.

The committee states that one main goal is to promote ideas, practices, and programs to increase access to healthy foods.

Latinos make up 35% of Tucson residents.
