    Using the Food and Agriculture Mapper and Explorer to Support Grant Applications & Reporting Webinar

    | 2 pm ET | Virtual

    Are you applying for a local or regional food systems grant and looking to incorporate up-to-date local food systems data in your application? In this webinar, the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service will explore and demo a new tool called the Food and Agriculture Mapper and Explorer (FAME), which brings together data from dozens of publicly available datasets to make it easy for food systems practitioners to search and visualize information about U.S. local and regional food systems.

    FAME is an open-access resource with the goals of supporting the utilization of data in program development, evaluation, and decision making and improving access to data. Using an equity focused lens, this resource includes indicators covering topics including labor, community resources, nutrition security and food access, business development, and local food sales and works to improve access to more comprehensive data on local and regional food systems. Join this webinar to learn how to best make use of this resource and to learn more about the state of local food systems in a given area. There will be a live question and answer session at the end.
