The Center for Energy and Environmental Policy (CEEP) at the University of Delaware is conducting a policy analysis of the potential benefits of enhancing the local food system in Delaware. The objective of this survey is to improve the understanding of the current local food system in Delaware and the barriers and opportunities for its enhancement as perceived by different stakeholders in the local food system. Participants in this survey include farmers and growers, restaurants, retailers, and institutions in Delaware.

Results of this survey will be included in a final report to the Delaware state legislature.
