Our Origin Story
Formerly known as the Food Learning Locator, the Nutrition Navigator is an interactive online mapping tool designed to help communities uncover new layers of programs and resources within their local food system.
This tool, created by the Bainum Family Foundation and now facilitated by The Food Trust, highlights points of expanded access and affordability for healthy food, nutrition education opportunities, and job training programs in the agricultural and culinary fields.
