MN350’s Food Systems Team is committed to creating a regenerative, locally-adapted food system that delivers health and well-being to all members of every community, and provides an economic legacy capable of serving future generations. But right now, we are dependent on an industrial food economy that is unsustainable, both by design and in practice. Every link in this publicly-funded extractive economy contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, ecosystem destruction, and dependency. This is an economic problem, and it needs an economic solution.
That’s why we’re building a movement around the Headwaters Bill, which will create the inclusive economy we need, to meet the demands of food, water, and climate. Now is the time to invest our public resources in a locally-adapted food economy designed for sustainable living, from source to table.
We are at a crossroads. The climate crisis is our opportunity to set a course for success. With a food economy designed to depend on healthy ecosystems, communities and farmers alike will thrive.
Together, we can create a food economy that connects urban and rural communities through a common purpose: neighbors caring for one another, and for the home we share.
You can become a champion for this vision today by taking one of the actions below.
