2021 Southcoast Food System Assessment Report Virtual Presentation

One event on January 13, 2022 at 6:30 pm
Just prior to the pandemic settling in, The Marion Institute launched a study to update the 2014 Food System Assessment for Southeastern MA. The goals of the Assessment are:
- To provide an updated landscape of the region’s food system assets incorporating broader research, surveys, and stakeholder interviews.
- Share progress made since the first report and current challenges.
- Identify intervention points where policy can support an equitable and sustainable food system for all in the region.
- To raise awareness of Southeastern Massachusetts’ contributions to statewide and New England food system planning work.
With the help of Northbound Ventures and nearly 300 community partners that represent farmers, fishers, food pantries, churches, social service agencies, schools, institutional buyers, and a myriad group of partner organizations throughout Southeastern Massachusetts, the 2021 Assessment of the Food System was published and released in November 2021.
