Food Localism

How far did your meal travel before it got to your plate? Food localism is about minimizing the length of that trip. Globalization and centralized distribution systems have dramatically increased the distances between where food is grown or raised and where it is finally eaten. Food localism builds local production for local consumption in order to minimize greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, to support and diversify local agriculture, and to promote local food security and food sovereignty.
