Connecting Food, Farms and the Environment

To Rebuild our Local Food Economy

Our Work

Local-Foods-System_edited-1Working to Improve our Local Food System >>

The Foodshed Alliance has completed a year-long assessment of the northern New Jersey food system, and has published the Regional Foodshed Resiliency Plan. The plan includes goals for strengthening the food system, and outlines the creation of an implementation plan. We invite the many, many food-system stakeholders to come together to strengthen the northern New Jersey food system, and to work to create a food system that is just and fair, builds strong and resilient communities, promotes vibrant and healthy farms, promotes healthy people, supports a sustainable ecosystem, and promotes thriving local economies. Working together to incorporate these values into a healthy food system will benefit us all.
