The Problem

The Cheap Food System is broken.

Agricultural industrialization seemed to make sense in the ’50s as WW2 opened up previously unimagined trade and consumption levels. But the practices, economics, and chemistry of that rapid expansion have depleted vast swaths of farmland to the point of desertification; drained the finances from generations of American farmers, bankrupting rural communities en masse; and entrenched unhealthy diets throughout the Western world, creating novel, preventable, chronic diseases and their associated out-of-control healthcare costs.

The Solution

Build a Good Food System

The good news is we know how to do better. We can rebuild our food system to restore our ecosystems, revitalize rural communities, and renormalize healthy consumption. By taking a regional approach to supply and demand, we create a network of independent but interconnected local food systems that produce food regeneratively and humanely, process and distribute food fairly and sustainably, and provide Good Food safely and accessibly to everyone.

What is a Good Food System?

A Good Food System is a regional, distributed network of independent but interconnected local food providers who agree to operate in a values-based, outcome-verified, and locally implemented manner.
