This webinar will help:
identify current efforts in research and extension that address how local and regional food systems impact public health, environmental sustainability and community well-being;
identify and measure key indicators that determine whether there is positive change in the regional food system as a result of related projects or programs;
identify key success factors, challenges and policy implications related to this issue; and
