Tools for Community Self Determination

Local Food as Community Economic Development

A vibrant local foods movement is sweeping across the U.S., and Crossroads plays a key role as a national leader. We serve as the convenor of a proposed Community Economic Development committee of the Community Food Security Coalition.

We are responding to broad interest from all over the nation for tools to promote local foods as economic development. This web site is where materials for that committee are posted.

The next CFSC Community Economic Development meeting will be July 29, 2008. For more information, contact Ken Meter at kmeter (at)
