The Economics of Local Food Systems toolkit was developed to help organizations make more deliberate and credible measurements of local and regional economic activity and other ancillary benefits of local food systems. The toolkit is made up of seven modules, split into two stages:
- Modules 1-4 guides the preliminary stages of an impact assessment and includes framing the system, relevant economic activities and assessment process as well as collecting and analyzing relevant primary and secondary data; and
- Modules 5-7 provides a more technical set of practices and discussion of how to use the information collected in stage one to conduct a more rigorous analysis.
