Health Food Access Tasmania (HFAT) is a multi-dimensional food security initiative aimed at supporting projects that make healthy food choices easy, through building local solutions which increase access to fruit and vegetables (preferably locally grown) within communities across Tasmania.

HFAT works within a collaborative framework and builds on the body of food security research, policy and practice undertaken in Tasmania over the past decade, in particular the research in the Food for all Tasmanians strategy. The HFAT initiative comprises a number of sub-projects, each with specific aims and objectives. A key point of reference for HFAT is to work within a social determinants of health framework, which seeks to address important health, economic, and social issues affecting food security at a local level.
