In the face of soaring obesity and hunger rates, socioeconomic decline, and threats of peak soil and peak oil, many communities are making paths to a brighter future by building community food systems that aim to nourish everyone in current and future generations.

Starting April 2011, Food Dignity is a 5-year initiative to trace these paths taken by five US communities and to collaborate in mapping and traveling the most appropriate and effective roads forward for creating sustainable community food systems that build food security.

The Food Dignity team includes dozens of people at two universities, one “action-think” tank, one college, and five community-based organizations. Read more about the Food Dignity team on our Partners page.
