Share your input on food resources in Winston-Salem

This initiative is part of the city’s efforts to enhance quality of life and create a healthier environment.

Assortment of different-colored vegetables are in bins on a table. There is a scale behind them in the table.

You’ll be asked how often you have fruits and vegetable in your home.

Want to advocate for more healthy and sustainable food resources in your neighborhood? The city of Winston-Salem’s Department of Sustainability needs your feedback to identify where food is in abundance or lacking across the community.

Your input will help the city understand the challenges residents may be facing to access healthy food. Certain factors include distance to the nearest grocery store, price of groceries, and quality of food available.
