Final Abstract for URS Program
This research presents a systemic characterization of the different operational features of food and nutrition security supply chain operations. The results provide insight into the level of effectiveness of different approaches to mitigate food and nutrition insecurity. In-depth interviews were conducted in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area to gather data about the supply chain configurations employed by these organizations. Using a grounded theory approach, the authors extracted the common themes that characterize the organizational structures and supply chain dynamics from the organizations interviewed. The results discuss the chief conclusions and policy implications.
