Consultant for Food System

For many Newark residents shopping at convenience stores are the only option, and while accessible, are often more expensive, forcing residents to rely on processed and fast foods To this end, we (LPCCD) are seeking to conduct an assessment of the visibility of establishing a local food system in Lincoln Park. This will involve research of multiple, innovative food production and distribution models in relation to both community supported agriculture and job creation. It is our beliefs that having a food system in Newark would enable us to create jobs, capture capital that is spent outside of Newark, support regional and local farmers, establish and build partnerships and reduce the unemployment rate in Newark.
