2017 VOL.1

We are delighted to share Atlanta’s Local Food Baseline Report with you— a collaborative effort with more than 30 of our organizational partners! This report is the first of its kind to capture the current state of our city's local food system, and to understand its impact on our urban communities.

The report focuses on four core areas where local food benefits the community: economic development, community vitality, health and nutrition, and environmental stewardship. This report is just one way of telling the big story about our city's local food by showing a picture of where we are today. We invite you to join us in creating the roadmap and story of the future together.

Join us in spreading the word to your supporters on social media! 

Please use the sample social media posts and images below to help get the word out! 

Your friends and followers can view the report and local food facts at the interactive site
