12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Eastern
At this meeting, we will share information about the application process and structure for our CARAT Pilot 2024.
The Community & Agriculture Resilience Audit Tool - CARAT - helps community stakeholders assess how they currently utilize the assets of their local food system to achieve a substantial level of community resilience.
CARAT measures the resources within a food system via 101 indicators to determine possible next steps to increase community resiliency and food sovereignty.
These indicators revolve around seven core themes that address the complex nature of community resiliency. Each requires the attention and participation of a diverse team of community stakeholders who work together to provide a holistic perspective of how food systems play an integral role in their community’s resilience.
This informational session will introduce you to the free, open-access CARAT tool and provide you with the opportunity to think through next steps for planning a CARAT audit in your community.
Coordinated by Joyce Tian and Kim Hines of NAFSN, with expertise provided by CARAT Chair Jodee Smith of Indiana University.
