Promoting local foods
According to the Regional Food System Working Group’s Best Practices Report, an early focus in building a regional food system is to increase awareness of the impact of local foods on the social, economic, environmental, and public health of communities. These promotional activities can be in the form of simple educational activities, public events, fundraisers, presentations, media campaigns and more.
