1051: Local food and climate change - consumption
This paper is taken from ‘Local food and climate change’ the summary and introduction of a report produced by Making Local Food Work
Year of Publication2010
If greenhouse gas emissions are to be reduced significantly, we will need to change the balance of the food we eat. A lower impact diet is seasonal, largely based on food that comes from plants, and can include some meat and dairy products grown to high environmental standards. Community food enterprises can play a lead role in changing the way people think about food. Direct contact between food producers and consumers, and with food growing projects, can help people to understand that adopting a more sustainable way of living can be attractive and achievable.
