dc.description.abstract Food insecurity is the state of being without access to affordable, nutritious food. According to the USDA there are reports of multiple indications of disrupted eating patterns and reduced food intake among low income communities. Keene Housing, a low-income housing community aims to help people and address inequities by providing them with a place to live and other basic human needs such as nutritious foods. Due to financial burdens many residents are subjected to low quality foods.This study utilized: a thirteen question written survey on food insecurity and healthy eating, property assessments of each site owned by Keene Housing, and a data analysis. The results of the study provided Keene Housing with feedback, such as the amount of residents willing to participate in food programs, the land that is currently available to provide residents with their own community gardens, and the overall food based needs of each housing site. This information combined with other reports will ultimately provide Keene Housing with an assessment to further their construction of various food outreach programs.
