    Kentucky Food Consumer Surveys are designed to collect information about food behaviors and attitudes from households across the state. 


   Results from these surveys are used to assist county extension agents, farmers, small-scale food entrepreneurs, educators, and market managers with food marketing strategies and overall agribusiness management.


   The goal of our research is to support local and regional food systems,  strengthen economies, improve food quality, increase fresh produce accessibility and consumption,  and positively impact the environment.
