See the results of a comprehensive study of the Greater Philadelphia Food System conducted by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.

This study looks at a broad range of food supply issues, such as agricultural production trends, natural resource constraints, the origins and destinations of food imports and exports, and the significance of the food economy.
