Carolyn Dimitri, associate professor of food studies, has been thinking about sustainable food systems for more than twenty years. A food economist, Dimitri studies the impact that the marketing, distribution, and production of foods have on our ecosystem, health, and the businesses involved in our food system.
A recently awarded $453,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture will allow the associate professor and researchers at Penn State to study urban agriculture in fifteen cities. The project is titled, The State Of Urban Farming In The United States: Enhancing The Viability Of Small And Medium-Sized Commercial Urban Farms.
