Growing a Sustainable Food System in Peoria County - Public Engagement Symposium Poster Presentation

Prepared by Nancy Smebak, University of Illinois Extension Research Assistant, April 2015

This project documents and describes the food system in Peoria County and the surrounding region through participatory and analytic mapping and key informant interviews and videos. Case studies and academic research provide suggestions for improving profitability, equity, civic engagement, and health in the local food system.
