Summary
Throughout the United States, people are increasingly concerned about where their food comes from, how it is produced, and how its production affects individuals and their communities. While large, distant farms and multinational companies dominate at the national and global levels, innovative programs -- including farmers' markets, farm-to-school initiatives, and agritourism -- are forging stronger connections between people and food at the local and regional levels. This book takes an in-depth look at critical issues, successful programs, and challenges for improving food systems spanning a few miles to a few thousand miles. Case studies that delve into the values that drive farmers, food advocates, and food entrepreneurs are interwoven with analysis supported by the latest research. Examples of entrepreneurial farms and organizations working together to build sustainable food systems are relevant to the entire country -- and reveal results that are about much more than fresh food
