to healthy and culturally appropriate food in community settings such as grocery stores has always been an area of focus for Hartford Food System. Shopping for groceries in urban settings can be a challenging task. Hartford has only one major supermarket. In the absence of larger stores, city residents rely on a range of local retailers for their grocery needs, including traveling regularly outside their own communities to buy food elsewhere. From corner store projects to participation in efforts to attract new supermarkets, HFS believes that a healthy community food system needs strong, sound, and high quality retail outlets.
Hartford Food System was founded in 1978. Since then, we have been dedicated to finding long-term solutions for access to affordable and healthy food in our home city of Hartford.
