The Mayor's Office of Food Access wants everyone to have access to nutritious food. That food should be affordable, easy to find, and reflect the many cultures of our City.
Our goal is to create a more food secure community with a vibrant, inclusive food culture. We want to reflect the diversity of the residents of Boston.
