Local Food System Toolkits

Resource: Local Food System Toolkits

 These publications offer guidelines for developing successful local food systems that can be incorporated into sustainability education programs and community outreach activities. Below are links to some of the specific toolkits and resources found on this page.

Local Food System Toolkit 1: Developing a Worksite Food Box Program: This is a guide for creating a program for pre-packed food boxes delivered weekly to employees at their workplaces. It could easily be marketed to college staff and students who do not have easy access to locally grown foods.

Local Food System Toolkit #2: Managing Cash Flow for a Low-Capital Food Hub Start-up: For organizations that collect and distribute local food, this toolkit explains how food hub cash flow, even with limited funds, can be used advantageously.

The “Supporting Local Food System Development in Your Community” guidebook offers a seven-step planner to develop and promote a local food system in your community or on your campus.
