Local and Regional Food Systems Bring Value to Communities by:
- generating economic development
- creating relationships between residents, farmers and businesses
- preserving and protecting farm land
- supporting healthy lifestyles
All of us rely on the food system, but it’s not always clear what role we play or how we can make it better. Nebraska Extension is poised to assist all Nebraskans to become better acquainted with their food system and to work with communities across the state to embark on building a food system that meets the needs of everyone.Join the Network Summit Report Feb 2019
