Regional Food

Karp Resources uniquely engages government, businesses and non-profits in planning comprehensive food system innovations—from production to processing to procurement, distribution and consumption—that underlie robust economic development and community strategies. Our food system planning success stories include the New York City Council, local and national foundations (Ruth Mott and C.S. Mott Foundations, the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Foundation) and corporations (C.H. Robinson).
