In the face of recurring environmental crises, interest in local food systems has evolved from a fringe trend to a full-fledged social movement. Such localized food systems are viewed as a way of rejuvenating the foundations of people’s nutrition, incomes, economies, ecologies, and cultures. However, the movement has been met with resistance from those championing the conventional, large-scale food system. This volume of RCC Perspectives offers insights into the motivations, benefits, and limitations of local food systems.
