Abstract:

Nearly 93 of the food consumed in FEMA Region VI is warehoused within the region. The table below summarizes the source and magnitude of all shipments from warehouses to supermarkets within the region. Three of the five states in FEMA Region VI Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas are largely self-sufficient, warehousing between 75 to 97 of their food supplies within their own borders. New Mexico and Arkansas are heavily dependent on out-of-state warehouses for food shipments, with less than one-third of their food supplies stored within their state boundaries. Close to half of New Mexicos food is warehoused in Texas, while 15 comes from Colorado in Region VIII, highlighting a need for interstate as well as interregional coordination. In the case of Arkansas, over half of its food stocks are warehoused outside the region Tennessee and Mississippi in Region IV, and Missouri in Region VII so that interregional coordination will be required.
