Food Systems

A resource guide related to all aspects of local/community food systems, from production and processing to consumption and disposal.

Food Systems

The term "food system" is used to describe the complex and interconnected activities of agricultural food production, processing, marketing, consumption, and ultimately disposal. "Food systems" is not a true discipline, but an emerging area of interdisciplinary study that brings together scientists, social scientists and humanists to help address the cultural, social, ecological, physical, ethical and political aspects of "food."
