The West Virginia Road Map for the Food Economy is a statewide "food charter" designed to help us all focus, measure, and celebrate our collective progress towards a stronger local food system. The Road Map offers a vision for West Virginia's local food economy and provides ways of measuring how statewide and local policies, programs, and community efforts are contributing to the strength of that food economy. It includes an action plan for the next five years. Through seven public forums across the state, more than 310 West Virginians from all walks of life contributed to writing the Road Map.

The action plan in the Road Map for the Food Economy centers around four goals for West Virginia:

1. Youth and new farmers participate in the agricultural economy.
2. Institutions and schools buy healthy local food.
3. The public consumes healthy local food at a household level.
4. Local farmers increase their income and are profitable.
