Our reliance on industrial agriculture has resulted in a meals supply riddled with hidden environmental, economic, and health care costs and beset by increasing meals rates. With only a handful of corporations accountable for the lion’s share of the food on our supermarket shelves, we are extremely vulnerable to supply chain disruption. The Urban Meals Revolution provides a recipe for neighborhood meals security based on major innovations across North America. The author draws on his political and company expertise to show that we have all the essential components to ensure that nearby, fresh sustainable food is inexpensive and widely accessible. He describes how cities are bringing meals production house by: Growing neighborhood by means of neighborhood gardening, cooking, and composting programs Rebuilding regional food processing, storage, and distribution systems Investing in farmers markets and neighborhood supported agriculture Minimizing obesity by way of neighborhood fresh meals initiatives in schools, colleges, and universities Ending inner-city food deserts Generating meals locally tends to make people healthier, alleviates poverty, creates jobs, and makes cities safer and much more gorgeous. The Urban Meals Revolution is an essential resource for anybody who has lost self-assurance in the global industrial meals method and wants sensible advice on how to join the nearby meals revolution. Peter Ladner has served two terms as a Vancouver City Councilor. With much more than thirty-5 years of journalistic experience, he is a frequent speaker on community problems and has a particular interest in the intersection of food policy and city planning.
