The Foodshed Alliance is working to shift our food and farming system towards significantly increased production and consumption of locally grown, locally produced, and locally sourced foods. This will shift millions of dollars into our region’s local food economy, dollars that are currently being stripped away by an industrialized, globalized, fossil-fuel-based, chemical-dependent food system that is degrading our environment, damaging our health, and undermining our local economy.

The Foodshed Alliance is working to help build a local resilient food economy by engaging citizens, communities, growers, food-related businesses, and local governments to take the far-reaching actions that are needed to localize and strengthen our local food system.
