Food is the Basis for Local Economy Building

The Wallace Center, a program at Winrock International,just published a report called Community Food Enterprise: Local Success in a Global Market Place.

My main takeaways from reading the executive summary and introduction of the report:

  • Local food enterprises can scale.
  • The analyzed enterprises put considerable investment into achieving social goals beyond private profit.
  • Food is one of the most important entry points for local economy building.

Triple Pundit published a more detailed summary.
