INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — One in seven Hoosiers struggles with hunger.

And the fix for food insecurity is complicated.

Today, the Indy Food Council released its state of the food system report.

"We have a lot of work to do in terms of making sure that everybody has fresh food close by, and they can easily access it," Emily Toner, Urban Agriculture educator said. "And so we actually rank fairly low compared to other cities and we really need to work on that."

The report offers ideas to move forward, including a census that will let them know who is growing and producing food in Central Indiana.
