The State of the Local Food System - Excerpt from LFFC's Strategic Plan

Our 10th Annual Assembly's theme is the State of the Local Food System, where we are exploring the changes we've witnessed and experienced as retailers, farmers, co-operators and consumers in the local food sector.  These dramatic changes have led to a need for such opportunities as our Fair Finance Fund, to support local food entrepreneurs and farm businesses.  Check out the excerpt below from our Strategic Plan, where we outline this background and need for deeper discussion and collective action.
