Healthy Food Systems

To improve the health of our local food system, we need to understand the interdependencies within the food supply chain and the resources & policies that influence them. Tracking imports, exports & locally grown foods/crops by acres, weight, dollars, calories &/or nutrients can begin to highlight gaps & weaknesses within the system, and allow data-driven decisions to more efficaciously move us in a healthier direction.

Health, Wellness & Security

For all to prosper, we must have equitable access & ability to satisfy our most basic needs of health & security. Understanding our intricate interdependencies deepens proportionately with enhanced physical, emotional, cognitive & spiritual need-satisfaction within our ecological, socio-cultural and economic systems, enabling us to progressively act more efficaciously in the best interests of all.
