Healthy Food Access Tasmania

We've been working on several projects with local governments across Tasmania, big and small.

​​​The Healthy Food Access Tasmania project has produced Local Government Food Access Profiles for 28 of the state's 29 municipalities.

The profiles include information about:

  • ​why access to healthy food matters
  • where healthy food, particularly fruit and vegetables, are readily available for purchase in the municipality
  • local data about households who may have poor access to healthy food
  • price and affordability for healthy food
  • a framework for how to use a systems approach to making households more resilient to healthy eating
  • local highlights of projects and programs
  • suggestions for future action for the local government area.
Final report: Availability, cost and affordability of a basket of healthy food in Tasmania (PDF)

We acknowledge the financial and other support from the federal Department of Health through Tasmania Medicare Local.
