Discussion Paper Number Seven: Food Retail Access and Food Security for Toronto’s Low-Income Citizens

Abstract:

Nutritionally vulnerable citizens can live in areas that are the least well served by the dominant system. They also are the least likely to have access to cars to travel to more competitive food retail areas in the suburbs. These populations are dependent on local food retail outlets. This paper considers what food retail structural problems these citizens face and what improvements to the system should be recommended. Is there ready access to quality grocery stores or alternate food sources for low-income Toronto citizens?
