Abstract:

Nearly 90 of the food consumed in FEMA Region I is warehoused within the region. The table below summarizes the source and magnitude of all shipments from warehouses to supermarkets within the region. Two states, Massachusetts and Maine, are largely self-sufficient, warehousing nearly 75 of their food supplies within their own borders, New Hampshire and Vermont are heavily dependent on out-of-state warehouses for food shipments, with only 34 and 25, respectively, of their food supplies stored within the state boundaries. In the case of Vermont, a substantial portion 34 of the states food stocks come from another region New York in Region II, highlighting a need for interregional coordination. Author
