PhD candidate Jeff Allen analyzed changes in access to food banks in Toronto after 21 new locations opened during the COVID-19 pandemic. The research shows that the number of low income residents who could reach a food bank within 20 minutes increased from 50% to 60%. Below are three maps from the study. The first two maps plot 20 minute access to food banks in February 2020 and May 2021, respectively. The final map presents the changes in access between those periods.
