Our Work

Learn about the clients we have had the honor of working with, the projects we have partnered on, and the reports and tools we have published to help accelerate the development of local food systems.

Clients & Projects

Our clients are community groups, state and municipal planners, investors and entrepreneurs. Their common thread is a shared goal of creating a more connected and equitable food system within their communities. They seek greater access to markets and technical assistance for their local farmers and producers. And they envision more nutritious and sustainably sourced food in their local institutions, restaurants and markets.
