The Four Goal Areas
Indicators were chosen based on three criteria
- Data sets had to represent the goal area with information relevant to our local food system
- 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
- Data sets will be updated regularly for the foreseeable future
Some of the indicators could overlap into different goal areas. These indicators also cover different sectors of the food system.
