Back in a jiffy!
After nearly a year of research into the importance of local food and how to improve access to it, we have come up with a few answers. The Cropolis team has worked with farms, food distributors, large-institution and small-business food purchasers, and individuals to reaffirm why local food is so valuable and discover why there isn’t more participation in the local food economy. In talking to these groups, we routinely got a similar response:
For example, orders from restaurants to local farms take place over the phone, through emails and texts, and sometimes, even with a fax machine. Disorganized communication means that these relationships are hard to build and even harder to sustain. This inefficiency makes seasonal produce unaffordable and inaccessible to many restaurants and makes significant sources of demand unavailable to prospective local farmers. There is no centralized location for local food transactions and ordering.
