Fixing Food - Fresh Solutions from Five U.S. Cities

Food Systems & Local Food This US-based report documents some of the innovative ways that local leaders are combating a broken food system. It highlights five urban communities that are implementing programs that: help residents grow and sell healthy food; train the next generation of farmers; and bring healthy food to places where people gather. The case studies can serve as models for other local communities to learn from and adapt strategies to their own unique challenges and needs.
