At Mosaic’s second annual Florida Hunger-Relief Forum, Florida’s Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam unveiled a new advanced web-based tool, a statewide map that identifies high-risk communities in Florida with a lack of access to nutritional foods.
“The possibilities of this roadmap are unlimited,” said Commissioner Putnam. “It will help state agencies like mine make better-informed decisions about where we use our limited resources to support Florida communities at greatest risk. This tool also will assist nonprofits, food banks and other organizations to identify gaps in resources, determine the most effective approaches and yield a greater impact on the residents of Florida.”
