GLRPPR Sector Resource: U.S. Food System Factsheet

Title:
U.S. Food System Factsheet

Abstract:
Americans enjoy a diverse abundance of low-cost food, spending a mere 10% of disposable income on food. However, store prices do not reflect the external costs --economic, social, and environmental--that impact the sustainability of the food system. Considering the full life cycle of the U.S. food system illuminates the connection between consumption behaviors and production practices.
