A (deep) look into Somerville’s food system

How do Somervillians eat?  What does our local food system look like? Where are the gaps? And, how can we do better? This past summer, the city of Somerville, through its initiative Shape Up Somerville along with the Somerville Food Security Coalition, published a Community Food System Assessment that takes a deep dive into all things food in one of our local host communities. The assessment looks through the lens of both food security and consumer practices and gives suggestions for plausible steps that can be taken to mend gaps. Also, check out pages 71-75 to see the work of some Environmental Studies Tufts students and the Tufts Food Rescue Collaborative!
