A proposal to improve access to affordable, healthful food for all Portlanders -- especially those with limited access -- will be discussed by City Council on June 7 at 2 p.m. The recommended draft of the Urban Food Zoning Code Update project supports neighborhood-scale community gardens, market gardens, farmers markets, food buying clubs and community supported agriculture (CSAs).
Funding from Multnomah County’s Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) Initiative supported this unique and valuable partnership between the City’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and the Oregon Public Health Institute (OPHI) to make affordable, healthful food accessible to all Portlanders, especially those in underserved communities.
