dc.description.abstractThe local food movement is creating jobs and improving health by expanding our "food system" (the growing, processing, distributing, consuming, and composting/recycling of food). Communities are supporting sustainable farming and providing better access to food insecure areas. But how do you bring everyone together to make things happen? One idea is to develop a Local Food Council. This program will help connect citizens, public policymakers, private business leaders and not-for-profit institutions to make an impact.en_US
