On Thursday February 7, the Healthy Farms Healthy People Coalition hosted an “Ask the Experts” web forum in follow-up to an August web forum in which panelists explored how the price of food affects the health of consumers and economic viability of farmers. We brought back those same panelists to spend an hour answering audience questions about the economics of healthy food.
If you missed any of the web forum, it is now available to view or download here!
We’d like to thank our panelists for sharing their unique expertise and perspectives, and for an engaging and informative discussion on the price of food: Dr. Andrea Carlson from the USDA’s Economic Research Service, Dr. Chad Hellwinckel from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and the Knoxville Food Policy Council, Dr. Jennifer Obadia of the Boston Collaborative for Food and Fitness, Alexa Delwiche of the Los Angeles Food Policy Council, and Michael O’Gorman of the Farmer Veteran Coalition.
The following reports were referenced during the web forum:
- Are Healthy Foods Really More Expensive? It Depends on How You Measure the Price by Andrea Carlson and Elizabeth Frazao
- Healthy Food Incentives Cluster Evaluation 2011 Final Report
This Healthy Farms Healthy People web forum was organized by Coalition Steering Committee member ChangeLab Solutions and moderated by Christine Fry.
Stay tuned for details on our next forum.
