Salt Lake City Community Food Assessment

VODA is excited to announce that we’ve been selected to develop a community food assessment for Salt Lake City. We are teaming with Robin Carbaugh, of Carbaugh Associates, and Scott Murray, of Murray Farms to analyze the food systems of Salt Lake City, including all producers, processors, distributors, and consumers of food within a 200 mile radius of the city.

The food we eat, where it comes from and how it is produced has a large impact on our community and our quality of life. Assessing the current situation of Salt Lake City’s food system is a vital first step in establishing the methods necessary to make the system sustainable. This analysis process will help ensure the vitality of the food systems in Salt Lake City, the health and well-being of its residents and the ability for future generations to continue with sustainable practices and living.
