Fresh For Less is an initiative by the City of Austin partnering with the Sustainable Food Center, Farmshare Austin, and GAVA to offer fresh, affordable, convenient, and nutritious food. I started working with them through Open Austin, where I met Selene Arrazolo, lead data analyst for data.world. We worked with Sarah Stein-Lobovits, Food Access Coordinator with the City of Austin’s Department of Public Health, to outline our goals.

Research

The majority of my involvement so far has been assisting with research: phrasing problem statements and research questions: https://data.world/cityofaustin/fresh-for-less/discuss/fresh-for-less/5809
