The Activities and Impacts of Food Community Projects 2005- 2009
This paper analyses the reach and the benefits of food community projects. Food community projects serve as powerful community development tools, improving access to healthy food, promoting economic and social equality, environmental stewardship, community mobilization and community food system infrastructure. The most common activities revolve around community food production and marketing. Many of the projects see young people as the key actors to address future food system challenges, and they involve them in a variety of ways. The CFP Program has increased the capacity of low-income communities to control their own food systems.
