AGree Releases Report on Local Food

Friday, September 18, 2015 - Sara Suriani

Washington, DC (Sept. 18, 2015) – As farmers, retailers, hospitals and schools strive to meet the demand for local foods, a new AGree report examines the growth in local food systems, the hurdles to further expansion, and presents six recommendations that would support their development.
The report, Local Food: Revitalizing Community-based Food Systems, presents the consensus views of diverse stakeholders, dispels common myths about the local food movement and provides a bird’s eye view of projects underway across the nation to aid local sourcing.
