Core Elements of A Healthy Food System

Indicators were chosen based on three criteria

  1. Data sets had to represent the goal area with information relevant to our local food system
  2. An entity outside of the Whatcom Food Network was responsible for gathering the data and updating it as we do not have the resources to be a reporting body
  3. Data sets will be updated regularly for the foreseeable future

Some of the indicators could overlap into different core element areas. These indicators also cover different sectors of the food system.
