Local Food

Local ProduceA socially, economically and ecologically sustainable food system supports and promotes the current and future health of individuals, communities and the natural environment. It requires infrastructure and networks that support the life cycle of food from production to waste recovery. It makes nutritious food accessible and affordable to all, increases food safety and security, and is biodiverse and resilient. It is also humane and fair, protecting farmers, workers, consumers and communities.
