For many people, the New Year is a time to think about fresh starts, setting goals, and healthy habits. As we head into this New Year, we’re offering up a few ideas for starting or deepening your connection with a healthy local food system.
2020 tested our food system and challenged us to creatively respond to new food access challenges. In the words of Vandana Shiva, “We need to reinvent our eating and drinking, our moving and working, in our local ecosystems and local cultures.”
As we set intentions and reflect on how to approach the New Year, we know that many of us are still feeling the impact of 2020. We’re limited in what activities we can do safely, and we all have different priorities to attend to. But even within those limits, you can still deepen your relationship with the local food system.
At SFC, we’re working to cultivate a just and regenerative food system so people and the environment can thrive, but we can’t do it alone. Whether you’re exploring new kinds of local food, minimizing food waste, or befriending a farmer we’d love to have you on this journey with us.
Are you ready to embrace a deeper connection with your food and your community? Here are a few ideas to get you started!
