Local Food Assessment


Strengthening local food production and local markets

Growing consumer demand for food that is locally produced, marketed and consumed is generating an increased interest in “buying local”. This benefits the local economy by reducing the amount of imported foods. Consumers who are willing to pay more for locally grown and produced foods generally place importance on its freshness, quality and support for local farmers.

CCCD provides assistance with identifying potential distribution systems for marketing local foods, assessment of farm-to-institution procurement, and design of community and/or school gardens.
