Food can be viewed through the lenses of homeland security, emergency preparedness and human services, private industry and business, environmental stewardship, land use, and public utility, among other categories. This publication is based on the ongoing work of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) and the Greater Philadelphia Food System Stakeholder Committee. This plan identifies opportunities to develop the regional economy and strengthen our agricultural sector, decrease waste and want, improve public health, protect the region’s soil and water, and encourage diversity, innovation, and collaboration. It contains the Committee’s specific priority recommendations, based on these values.
