Founded in 1978, Hartford Food System (HFS) is dedicated to finding long-term solutions for access to affordable and healthy food in the city of Hartford. Among cities with more than 100,000 people, Hartford has one of the lowest median household income levels in the nation and almost 40% of Hartford families with children are below poverty level, making Hartford one of the poorest cities for children in the country. The lack of access to nutritionally adequate food or food insecurity, is a factor in hunger and high rates of diet related diseases among individuals living in urban regions.

The Healthy Pittsfield Partnership is coordinated by the Pittsfield Health Department and Board of Health. Partners include community advocates, business leaders, local health and human service professionals, city officials and more. The partnership is committed to community based initiatives that will improve the health and quality of life of Pittsfield’s residents and workforce.
