USDA “Access to Food” Survey

Congressman Fred Keller’s office put a call out to all residents in Juniata County to complete the USDA “Access to Food” survey to determine where people are having trouble accessing a stable food supply.

It’s a rather simple survey with only a few questions, but if you know anyone counting on a food bank for their family’s nourishment, please help them with the survey.

If everyone would complete the survey it would be most helpful for getting food resources where they need to go. The survey can be accessed here: Access to Food Survey.

The USDA Food Security resource page has links to Spanish and Chinese translations.
