Region-PA-WV-OH.png Tri-State Region-PA-WV-OH-Food System Project
This project intends to develop and implement a plan to increase the supply of local food available to residents of the Pittsburgh food shed (200 mile radius) in several states. By using a data-driven strategic plan as a guide, it envisions a series of targeted interventions to increase the number of producers, add to the variety of the local food inventory, create and enhance aggregation entities to the distribution system, reduce choke-points in supply chains, expand the number of distribution opportunities, and organize consumer demand in ways that improve the equitability of the food system.
