Reporting Process

Continuous learning about  food system activities, and priorities, and communicating or reporting about what works is an essential role of food councils.   There are many interested audiences:

  • The community itself:  Community members and local government leaders
  • Other councils in the network: what’s working in one community might help another and is a great way to encourage learning together
  • State agencies and organizations: Aligning resources and investments with local priorities

The Community Food Strategies initiative works with established food councils to develop a common or shared reporting process that:

  • Builds capacity within local councils to share what works, report their priorities, and activities and, what they’ve learned
  • Develops shared metrics across the network  benefiting everyone’s efforts in affecting change
  • Creates an overall picture of North Carolina’s community based food system
