Permalink Publication Examines History of Local Food Movement

The Michigan State University Center for Regional Food Systems has released a new publication titled The Local Food Movement: Setting the Stage for Good Food. This 28-page publication available online provides a brief history of the U.S. local food movement and its link to "good food"--food that is healthy, affordable, fair, and green--within the contexts of food access and health, food justice and sovereignty, the environment, and racial equity. The publication also contains a timeline that provides a sample of important U.S. events, policies, and statistics over the past 70 years that mark the growth of local food through the lens of the four elements of good food.
