Report Makes Case for Regional Food Systems

The Thomas A. Lyson Center for Civic Agriculture and Food Systems announced the release of A Regional Imperative: The Case for Regional Food Systems. The report explores the concepts, practices, challenges, and promise of regional food systems. Eight chapters take a wide perspective on the dimensions and attributes of regional food systems and identify challenges and suggestions for what is needed. Authors Kathy Ruhf and Kate Clancy collaborated with a diverse Discussion Team to strengthen their initial report, first released in January 2022, around race and equity.
