Rethinking our food supply
Local food systems have been decimated by the forces of industrial agribusiness, leaving us in a region of natural abundance where we buy much of our food from thousands of miles away. Did you know that the US food system consumes at least 10 Calories of fossil fuel energy for every 1 Calorie of food delivered to our plates? We can do better than this.
We are exploring ways to make it easier for local farmers and producers to get their food products into the hands of local residents and closing the loop on a food system that’s healthier, less energy intensive, and which helps retain wealth in the community.
