Revere's Food Economy

Through the City of Revere’s Healthy Community Initiatives department, Revere on the Move worked in partnership with Tufts University UEP Graduate Students on conducting research to assess the City of Revere’s food economy. This research includes collecting data through a city-wide business survey and public workshop. Through these methods, the students analyzed community workforce demands and small business development needs to support a growing local food economy.

Recognizing the nutritional benefits of locally sourced foods, and the potential for positive economic and environmental impact, Revere is inspired to improve the food system’s operations in our community, and in our region at large.

Recurring themes from research:

  • There exists a wide diversity of cuisines in Revere and fresh food is valued by all cultures and backgrounds
  • Existing and interested food business owners desire greater access to clear, streamlined regulatory information
  • Business owners value customer satisfaction and customer service standards vary between cultures
