On Thursday, Nov. 21, from 7:45-10 a.m., The Polis Center and its partner WFYI will host the fall SAVI Talks! program. “Getting Groceries: Food Access Across Groups, Neighborhoods, and Time” will look at food access from different perspectives: time, population, transportation modes such as walking and transit, and food systems. This will allow us to see how different places and populations in Indianapolis:

  • have been affected by store closures in recent years
  • experience little to no access to fresh produce due to lack of a car
  • have greater food access for those in need via secondary food outlets (e.g. convenience stores) and emergency resources (e.g. food pantries)
