 Pasco County's Food System:

A food system is defined as a system that includes all processes and infrastructure involved in feeding a population: growing, harvesting, processing, packaging, transporting, marketing, consumption, and disposal of food and food-related items.

Nourish has put out a extensive diagram on how the Food System effects the Biological, Economic, Political, Social and Health Systems it touches. Click the link below to review the nourish diagram.
