The Baltimore City (Maryland, USA) Office of Sustainability and the Johns Hopkins University Center for a Livable Future teamed up to assess the resilience of Baltimore’s food system. We took a holistic approach with particular emphasis on supporting food distribution and access within the city. The collaboration resulted in the Baltimore Food System Resilience Advisory Report, which developed strategies for improving resilience in the food system supplying city  residents, with a goal of supporting urban food security both now and after future crises.
