Food systems can be very complex. From growing the food we eat, to processing, packaging, transportation and end sales, food can travel long miles to reach your plate. These processes use a lot of water, energy and vehicle fuel to bring food to the table, and thinking locally can help reduce your environmental food-print.
What We Want to Accomplish
The city is working towards a local food system that encompasses the entire cycle of food production and consumption, including growing, transporting and the use of disposal. The goals below are focused on our commitment to increased food production:
