Assessing Food Security Risk in Your Community

The Wisconsin Food Security Project is an interactive data and mapping portal with state and local data on food security and the foundations of food security in Wisconsin. It includes:

  • Food security estimates
  • Demographic data
  • Economic indicators
  • Health indicators
  • Information about use of food assistance programs
  • Access to retail food outlets

Users can create and save customized maps and profiles of counties, school districts and municipalities around the state.

By providing systematic data that can be combined with local knowledge and insight, this tool is intended to empower stakeholders to identify and address food security risk factors in their communities. It also supports comparisons of how food security risk factors vary around the state.
