The Power of a Story: Getting the Word Out About the Local Food Movement

Project Title: Good Food Economies

Growing awareness that how we feed ourselves impacts the environment, the economy and human health has spurred a burgeoning local and regional food movement. Most media coverage so far has focused on the benefits to consumers. But in order to grow the movement and encourage more investment in sustainable agriculture, it’s important to showcase the benefits to local economies and communities. The Wallace Center at Winrock International works with organizations across the country to develop communications strategies that build the case for strong local and regional food systems.
