Building Food Security in Alaska
The most critical concern Alaskans hold for the future of food is the security of its food supply. 95% of the $2 billion of food Alaskans purchase is imported — meaning $1.9 billion leaves the state each year as Alaskans eat. Moreover, this food is shipped through long supply chains. Essential items arrive by airplane, barge, and truck from Mexico, Europe, Asia, and the Lower 48.
