American Planning Association
Boise’s Idaho Plan4Health Coalition is committed to improving Vista neighborhood residents’access to healthy food options as well as revitalizing the community. The Idaho Plan4Health Coalition used a mix of data collection approaches to build a truer picture of the neighborhood than might typically be possible. The results of this neighborhood food assessment, available in the project summary below, incorporated data from key informant interviews, a neighborhood survey, demographic analysis, and observations from being on the ground within the neighborhood. Using data and resident feedback, a strategic action plan was created to promote healthy lifestyles through healthy eating.
