Local Food Systems

Local and regional food systems are as complex and unique as the people they serve. While rural communities have challenges in distance, transportation, nutrition related chronic illness, and a higher need for SNAP benefits than their city counterparts, they also have all of the opportunities that come with natural resources for food production and an entrepreneurial spirit that reflects both a lifestyle and a living.

It is in this framework that the Alliance for Rural Impact meets organizations and communities, helping discover where they are, and moving toward where they want to be.  Our experts have years of experience in diversified farming, food safety, diet and nutrition and entrepreneurship.  Whether its increasing technology to streamline the food system, expanding production, or opening new markets, we join in to put jobs on the ground and jumpstart your rural economy through healthy, sustainable food production.
