"Two awards have been assigned to Baltimore (highest score) and Mexico City. The “Baltimore Food Policy Initiative” aims at addressing health, economic and environmental disparities by increasing access to healthy affordable food in Baltimore City’s food deserts. Mexico City’s “Community Dining Rooms Program” has set up more than 200 canteens throughout the city in areas with high rates of marginalization in order to offer affordable meals, thus empowering vulnerable people by providing them with an employment. Winners will use the contribution of the awards to exchange their policies and practices with other MUFPP cities."  (Source MUFPP)
