Measuring up: food systems report cards’ role in the fight for sustainable food systems

In an original research article, Alison Blay-Palmer and Charles Levkoe discuss the benefits and shortcomings of using a report card analysis as a tool to assess the states of food systems, current practices and how society envisions a healthy, equitable and sustainable food system. Report cards use indicators to gather and express information for practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and other stakeholders to use in the movement towards sustainable food systems. However, they present their own challenges, bias and political agendas. Co-authors developed the Food Counts: A Pan-Canadian Sustainable Food Systems Report Card during 2016 and 2017; this article provides valuable insight to this process and food systems report cards.
