Foodshed

New from Fresh Taste:

Good Food for All is a new blog and resource space for all those in the Greater Chicago foodshed and beyond wishing to learn and engage with others in the local food movement. This collaborative space is dedicated to news, updates, events, and innovative ideas related to local food.

‘Foodshed’ is a concept coined to represent where a given population’s food comes from and how it gets there. The focus of Good Food for All is the Greater Chicago foodshed, which includes all of Illinois, in addition to parts of Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota.

If the capacity of our foodshed were fully used and its products dedicated to the Chicagoland market, it could provide a very considerable portion of the region’s food needs, a healthy working landscape, and a significant stimulus to our economy.
