Gail Feenstra of SAREP, Jeri Ohmart of SAREP/ASI and Shermain Hardesty of Agricultural Resource Economics at UC Davis are contributing authors on a recently published article in the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development. The article,  Using a Supply Chain Analysis to Assess the Sustainability of Farm to Institution Programs, responds to rising interest in local and sustainable food among colleges and universities.  The study focuses on how to foster farm-to-institution programs by exploring barriers, opportunities, and potential solutions from different perspectives in the supply chain. Using a values-based supply chain approach, the article offers unique insights to people developing and maintaining these programs.
