Food Security

The Montgomery County Food Security Plan is a five-year Strategic Plan that envisions Montgomery County as a community in which all people at all times have access to safe, sufficient, nutritious food, with dignity.   Introduced in 2017, the Food Security Plan provides recommendations to reduce the food insecurity rate in the County from 7% (or 78,000 people) to 5.5% by the year 2020.

The recommendations of the Food Security Plan are being implemented through Department of Health and Human Services, the Montgomery County Food Council and many other community stakeholders and agency partners.
