Commitment to Action

Data Driven Solutions for a Sustainable Food System

Commitment by

Odysseus Foundation

In 2012, Odysseus committed to launching a state-wide analysis of food systems in the state of North Carolina. Through an analysis of existing market data as well as a collection of real-time information, Odysseus planned to assess a broad range of factors (transportation, consumer demand, farmer habits and yields, processing systems, etc.) to make recommendations for improved food systems that support local agriculture and increase access to healthy foods. Through new and existing partners, Odysseus will pilot recommended interventions throughout the state. In addition, Odysseus will create an online platform that will allow players within the food systems (farmers, legislators, processors, non-profits) to consistently track and share best practice information.
