On May 1st, 2018, the County launched the FoodStat data analysis tool to the public. The Montgomery County Food Council, along with Manna Food Center, the Capital Area Food Bank and Montgomery County DHHS worked closely with CountyStat to create this online platform that provides context for, and further supplements the Feeding America data on the level of food insecurity in the County. It brings together more than 60 data indicators of need and vulnerability, and it is hoped that FoodStat will enable government agencies, food assistance providers and any other interested parties to analyze the community’s access to food, its transportation and infrastructure needs, high priority zones and service delivery gaps, leading to the creation of policies and strategies that will inform priorities, drive collective impact, and ultimately reduce food insecurity in Montgomery County.
