BSRC has been working on improving community access to healthy and affordable food for many years, notably working to attract the first full-service supermarket and 6 first sit-down restaurant to the community and supporting the creation of the area’s first farmers market. BSRC began looking specifically at the food offered in early childcare settings in 2013.
