None of these problems can be solved unless we work together
A well-designed food system creates new opportunities for change.
When we say ‘food system,’ what we’re referring to is the network of interconnected processes – and the people behind these processes – that grow food and get it to your fork. The food system encompasses how and where food is produced, processed, distributed, and consumed, and how the waste is managed afterward. The food system is shaped by politics, economics, cultures, and the natural environment itself. The best food systems produce enough healthful food for all community members. Healthy food systems also create financial opportunities for businesses, offer gainful employment to individuals, and sustain the environment that we all share. A well-designed food system is the basis for a happy society.
