Ensuring a healthy food supply, both now and in the future, requires a resilient food system – one that can adapt to natural disasters and human-made challenges. While traditional disaster preparedness planning has not included the food system, Baltimore City and the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) are working to change that. The CLF’s Advisory Report assesses the Baltimore food system’s strengths and weaknesses related to resilience and recommends strategies for protecting the system against threats that would increase food insecurity in both short-term and long-term crises. The City will incorporate findings from the report into Baltimore’s Disaster Preparedness Plan update.
