A multidisciplinary research team led by Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has received a three-year, $936,000 grant to use collaborative computational modeling approaches to promote better community health through more equitable food systems.

Under the Tipping Points grant from the nonprofit Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR), a team will conduct the Modeling the Future of Food in Your Neighborhood study that will examine several key food-system strategies.

The team includes researchers from Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University and Albert Einstein College of Medicine as well as a dozen community stakeholders with expertise in community-based food systems, community and economic development, food security, health equity, and neighborhood action.

These will be linked with other data systems managed by study partners related to emergency food assistance distribution, food retail and sales patterns, information on fruit and vegetable incentive programming, health outcomes data, and regional economic development patterns and statistics.
