Kern County Food System Assessment
A food system assessment creates an opportunity for a community to learn more about the connections between production, distribution, consumption, and waste in the food system, and to better understand related economic, environmental, and health trends. Understanding trends and connections within the food system can help community members and policy makers identify successes and challenges, build relationships, and set priorities. This assessment is the product of collaboration among a broad range of stakeholders across the food system in Kern County, including farmers, retailers, consumers, public health and social service and agriculture professionals, educators, advocates, policymakers, regulators, and more. It is intended to serve as a catalyst for collaborative learning, relationship building, and community based policy development to strengthen Kern County’s food system.More Information »
