Supply Gap Analysis

map to display supply gap

We partnered with emergency food providers to develop the Supply Gap Map, a robust metric that tracks neighborhood-by-neighborhood levels of unmet food need, alongside the various supplies of food going into each neighborhood.

The City uses this data to inform policymakers and food distributors about where additional food is most needed, how much is needed, and how targeted deliveries could help to close the gap. 

Each neighborhood receives a weighted score, on a scale of 1-10, based on its gap  between projected need and supply of emergency food. The closer the score is to 10, the higher the level of unmet. On the Supply Gap map, dark shading indicates higher level of need.
