The report is an overview of Austin's food production, consumption, and waste within a framework for celebrating progress and identifying challenges and opportunities.
Full of cool infographics, maps, and case studies, it even features a quote from AFI's Jarred Maxwell!
“As you look at the business landscape across Austin, you see plenty of opportunities for tech companies, financial companies and traditional startups, but an awareness of food is sorely lacking. Sure, if you have
a new drink, energy bar or restaurant, then you have plenty of options for funding, mentoring, acceleration or incubation. However, those same options are not present for the people actually effecting food security or availability—farmers, ranchers, distribution, value-add companies, etc.”
