Local Food and Farm Assessments for the 420 Counties of North Carolina

In 2015, ASAP contracted with the Appalachian Regional Commission to conduct food and farm assessments for the 420 counties in the ARC geographic area. The purpose of these assessments was to baseline local food and farm activity within the region. The project identified relevant food system indicators and developed a “snapshot” methodology to provide communities with a starting point for understanding the food system where they live.  The project produced county snapshots for all ARC counties with data on production, retail infrastructure, information on health, consumption, and food access, and equity.
