NANTUCKET / Nantucket Island Project Center
In 2016, the nonprofit organization Sustainable Nantucket adopted the online platform WhatsGood to facilitate farm-to-restaurant transactions within their community. The purpose of this project was to analyze the results of the pilot program and advise Sustainable Nantucket on which online platform they should use in 2017 and beyond. We compiled a list of features desired by three stakeholder groups: administrators, producers, and consumers, and used this list to evaluate the local food platforms WhatsGood, FarmersWeb, and Local Food Marketplace. Assessments showed that WhatsGood is the most suitable online platform for Sustainable Nantucket's needs because of its low cost, mobile application, and willingness to collaborate through future development.
