  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Climate Resilience Support Local Food Systems
    Dependable fresh food, supporting local farmers and building resilient communities are just a few benefits of local food systems. Which of these (or other) advantages inspire you the most?

    Helping local farmers let them gain the money needed to buy food for their families and to continue producing. It's a cycle where we can have our push to help.
