Assistant Professor and Local Foods Extension Specialist
North Carolina
Dara Bloom is trained as a Rural Sociologist and has a research/extension appointment focusing on local food systems, with an emphasis on understanding issues of consumer access from a supply chain perspective. Her previous research has explored models aimed at "scaling-up" local food systems by engaging with conventional food system infrastructure, including Farm-to-School programs, wholesale distribution systems and most recently supermarkets' local produce sourcing programs. In addition to her academic training, Dara has worked as a farmhand, at Farmers' Markets, for community gardens and has run a small restaurant.
