What is The Food Commons?
The Food Commons model will leverage, support and enhance existing and emerging regional food system initiatives to offer the American public a wide range of benefits that are not widely distributed in our current food system.
The Food Commons model is a networked system of physical, ﬁnancial and organizational infrastructure that allows new local and regional markets to operate efﬁciently, and small to mid-sized food enterprises to compete and thrive according to principles of sustainability, fairness, and public accountability.
A movement has grown which brings great hope for a more healthy, sustainable and prosperous future. It is the movement to produce, access, secure and consume good and healthy food.
