Analysis of Food Pantry, Local Grocery Stores in Relation to Client Travel Distance

(Inactive) Child and Family Policy Center   (Des Moines)

March 2011

I was involved in creating maps for spatial relationships between food pantry, local grocery stores and client’s travel distance to these locations. It was done for Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) that operates Central Iowa food pantries. Currently, the project has expanded to include an interactive web application for locating food pantries along with local food related assets/amenities such as grocery stores and the like. It is currently being done by Iowa Institute for Community Alliances.
