Local Foods: The "Local Foods, Local Places" initiative helps communities build strong local food systems as part of their economic action plans. Teams of agricultural, health, environmental, and other experts work directly with communities to spur economic growth and improve the quality of life for all residents. They help create downtown markets with foods from local farmers, establish retail outlets to help revitalize small-town main streets, and more.
