New Report: Local Food in Appalachia

The Appalachian Regional Commission’s (ARC) new report, “Agriculture and Local Food Economies in the Appalachian Region,” examines the impact and potential of Appalachia’s food systems.

Based largely on U.S. Department of Agriculture Census of Agriculture data, the report is filled with recommendations and success strategies that can help communities cultivate thriving food economies.  The research also includes overviews and case studies that will prove useful to Appalachian stakeholders interested in developing their own local food systems.
