Advocates of local and regional food systems often point to their community and economic development potential. But what does this actually look like in terms of family security, jobs and markets? How can we effectively measure, track and communicate progress to policymakers, investors, businesses and the general public? Speakers will discuss these strategies and concepts in the context of statewide and regional food systems policy and program initiatives.
