A key interest of HCFS is climate change: both reducing the impact of food systems on climate (mitigation) and helping reduce the vulnerability of food systems to climate disruptions (adaptation). See our Climate-Friendly Food Systems booklet for more information. Fortunately, rebuilding a strong, resilient, healthy local food system can address mitigation and adaptation as well as a number of other pressing issues such as:

     -helping the economy
     -reducing health care needs and costs
     -restoring the environment
     -preserving agricultural communities
