The Local Food Forum Series
Fresh 1 is a part of our ongoing Local Food Forum Series that aims to bring our city together to learn more about Metro Atlanta’s local food movement and the hard work being done to connect our city to urban growers and fresh food.

The series is a component of the soon to be published Local Food Baseline Report that will highlight the key trends, challenges, and opportunities, and movement leaders that are building community in Metro Atlanta using sustainably-grown, locally-sourced food.
