Studies/Études : Greater Philadelphia Food System Study

Source: Planning for Agriculture and Food Network (PAFN).
"This publication is an objective study of Greater Philadelphia's food system and focuses on the agricultural resources, distribution infrastructure, regional economy, and stakeholders acting within the regional food system."

"Communities large and small are fed without anyone truly understanding how the entire global food system moves. Dr. Christian Peters, a former research associate at Cornell University and currently with Tufts University, writes that this illustrates “both the power of the marketplace to meet human demands and the peril of taking its function for granted."
