Grown Together: Local Food System Policy Tool Typologies and Bundling



This paper aims to identify the ways local food system policy tools are used and if they align with the needs of constituents. I begin by looking at policy tools and tool bundles; categorization of local food system policy tools in the literature; and how the typology used in local food system literature compares to more mainstream policy tools literature. The comparison of the tool typologies lays the foundation for analyses of individual tool use and use by category. It also provides the basis for my analysis of sustainability policy tool bundles and it’s applicability for studying local food and local food systems’ governance.
