Baltimarket is a suite of community-based food access and food justice programs through the Baltimore City Health Department. Baltimarket’s mission is to improve the health and wellness of Baltimore City residents by using food access and food justice as strategies for community transformation. This is achieved by promoting nutrition knowledge, skills, and self-efficacy; increased food security; and increased food access while tackling systemic inequities in order to affect the diet, and ultimately health, of food desert residents. Current Baltimarket programs include the Virtual Supermarket Program, the Healthy Stores Program, and the Neighborhood Food Advocates Initiative.
