Food and Nutrition Security in Los Angeles County

In partnership with Los Angeles County, Public Exchange is collaborating with a team of researchers from USC and beyond to build a whole-of-system data portal that monitors food and nutrition access and insecurity throughout the County, funded by the National Science Foundation.
