Regional Food Systems Assessment and Policy

by admin last modified Oct 20, 2015 01:05 PM

A close look at a region’s food system is a powerful way to understand the region's health and prosperity. The food system incorporates every resident - from farmers who grow food, to truckers who transport it, food workers who prepare it, and everyone who buys, eats and disposes of food.

UC SAREP empowers communities throughout California to strengthen their regional food systems and all those impacted by them.   With county-level partners, we conduct food system assessment to examine the relationships between agriculture, regional environmental quality, human health and local livelihoods.

UC SAREP also serves as a portal to the community/regional food systems resources available to community members, local non-profits and researchers.
