How and where we get our food, and the food that we eat, has a significant impact on our health, the climate, and local economies. A healthy, sustainable, and affordable food system is critical to ensure that everyone has access to nutritious foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, and that local economies and farmers benefit from their sale. Buying local produce and using sustainable farming practices also plays an important role in mitigating climate change by limiting the carbon footprint from agriculture production, nutrient runoff, and more.
