Food Connections: Capital Area Community Food Profile

  • Pin It

This guide is intended to transform the way we think about food systems - changing the concept of food following a linear path from farm to table (produced on farms, processed in factories, distributed by trucks and purchased by consumers at grocery stores or restaurants), to, instead, viewing the food system as a circle with multiple links and connections with the potential of strengthening our communities.  The Center for Regional Food Systems at Michigan State University believes that everyone – regardless of economic status, ethnicity or political bent; whether economic development professional, farmer, grocery retailer, public health advocate or eater – has a stake in the food system.
