Building Local Food Systems Topic Brief Now Available
Whether you are a meat processor or farmer, educator or commercial kitchen, having the best information at your disposal is key to working effectively within your food system. SARE’s new topic brief, Building Local and Regional Food Systems, provides an introduction to different facets of local and regional food systems, and directs you to resources that can help stakeholders build robust community food systems.
Local and regional food production provides new business opportunities, keeps food dollars in rural and urban areas, and makes fresher produce accessible to communities. Because of these benefits, demand for local food has quickly increased: Sales reached $11.7 billion in 2014, doubling 2012 sales, and has continued to grow.
