A food system is an interconnected network that includes everything from “field to fork” — essentially how food is grown, distributed and sold, consumed, and recovered from unnecessarily entering the landfill.
A sustainable food system is a local one. The research and reports below offer information about Austin’s food system and what the City is doing to make it more equitable and healthy.
COMING SOON: The Sustainability Office surveyed over 900 retail establishments to better understand food access in Austin. This Food Environment Analysis will provide a deeper understanding of healthy food access in our community, as well as an analytical basis for prioritizing food access initiatives.
