The Maryland Food System Map: Health and Policy Implications of the Local Food System

Jull Hall, Room 1123

Presented by:
Amanda Buczynski
Senior Program Officer, Food System Mapping
Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future

Amanda Buczynski has managed the GIS-based Maryland Food System Map Project (MFSMP) for the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) at the Bloomberg School of Public Health since 2008. The MSFMP is an interactive mapping tool and database that examines the current landscape of Maryland’s food system from farm to plate – including how food is grown, processed, sold and consumed.

By looking at the many different parts of the food system through the lens of geography, the map offers a resource to help discover opportunities and inform activities aimed at strengthening the system.

Sustainable Agriculture Tuesdays are part of the campus-wide Sustainable Tuesdays lecture series, co-sponsored by the Institute of Applied Agriculture, the School of Architecture, and the Office of Sustainability.
