Permalink Papers Explore Aspects of Northeast Food System

Researchers who cooperated in the Enhancing Food Security in the Northeast through Regional Food Systems (EFSNE) project have published three papers related to their work with the Northeast food system in the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development. The first paper, “Using a market basket to explore regional food systems,” discusses the findings from the project's production, distribution, and consumption research teams. This research identified opportunities that exist to enhance the production and distribution of eight foods. The second paper, "Engaging multiple audiences: Challenges and strategies in complex food systems projects," describes the project's stakeholder-engagement framework. The third paper, "Between global and local: Exploring regional food systems from the perspectives of four communities in the U.S. Northeast," is an analysis of four focus groups that reveals a number of insights into how consumers define their region, their perceived value of regionally grown food, and their tendency to conflate "local" and "regional." The three papers and their introduction are the first of more than ten manuscripts planned to summarize findings from the EFSNE project.
