Abstract

Tasmanians across all income levels do not eat sufficient fruit and vegetables. The reasons why we do not eat enough fruit and vegetables and have poor access to locally produced fresh fruit and vegetables are complex and vary from local government area (LGA) to LGA. The Healthy Food Access Tasmania project seeks to make healthy food choices easy choices by ensuring that fresh foods (preferably locally grown) are readily available across Tasmania. Sandy Murray and Stuart Auckland will provide an overview of the Healthy Food Access Tasmania (HFAT) project, including the results from the recent food pricing and availability survey conducted across Tasmania as well as preliminary findings from the food supply survey which will map the production of fresh fruit and vegetables in a number of Local Government Areas of Tasmania.
