Fresh Food Distribution Models for the Greater Los Angeles Region: Barriers and Opportunities to Facilitate and Scale Up the Distribution of Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

This report assesses the opportunities and barriers to scaling up the distribution of locally grown fruits and vegetables in the greater Los Angeles region. The primary focus of this research is to evaluate how large institutional clients can more readily access locally grown foods through traditional institutional procurement avenues such as large distribution firms. The suggested five models for scaling up the distribution of local foods include local school food programs; WIC Local Food Line; Farmers’ Market Hub; Farmer Collaborative; and Farm Direct Distribution Model, CSA in the Classroom.
