Food access is not equal for all Missourians. Missouri ranks 5th for food security in the nation, with both urban and rural communities suffering. At the state level, MCE works to support policy change in Jefferson City that can increase food access and to combat threats to important programs helping food insecure Missourians feed their families. MCE also works on food access at the local level specifically in St. Louis through the St. Louis Food Policy Coalition. Learn more about our work locally below.
