The Minnesota Food Charter is a roadmap to improve access to healthy, affordable, and safe food. It proposes 99 specific strategies to guide multilevel planning and action to change the food system. A surveillance system to monitor the Minnesota food system is one component of this initiative, but there is a paucity of literature to guide its development. To bridge this methodological gap, a shared measurement action team (SMAT) was created to recommend indicators to monitor the state of the Minnesota food system, as well as to discuss how to make the indicators credible, accessible, and meaningful to communities. This presentation will discuss the process of selecting indicators that support the creation of a sustainable economic, ecological, and equitable food system, and the challenges that arose during discussions.  These indicators represent the current state of available secondary data and can be viewed as a springboard for conversation and a call to action to develop data systems that advance community well-being around access to healthy, affordable, safe foods for all Minnesotans.
