Local foods from local farmers generates localizing healthy solutions.  The work of family farmers and collective organizers are delivering foods to communities that live within food deserts.The term food desert is significantly placed as we understand deserts as barren, vast, formidable and lacking resources for life. The work of grassroots organizations to supplement the gaps in food accessibility within small distribution portals are answering the needs of these deserted communities. The remedy to socioeconomic ailments is in diagnosing the condition of communities to their need for food that effects health. The aid to food gap is in proactive solutions to food versus reactive treatments that sustain the desert.

“Bringing in food from local farms in Hardinsburg, Indiana, Crestwood, Kentucky, Starlight, Indiana and more to provide fresh foods to Louisville. Working with framers to bring community to use what they grow is our goal,” states Karyn Moskowitz, executive director of Fresh Stop.  Working with framers with smaller than eight acres assist the sustainability of these farmers.

It is important to link rural to urban for sustainable solutions to bring what is produced to where it is needed. The next link in the chain is within education of foods as fun, science, necessary and impactful.  Carol Gunderson, director of Food Literacy states, “We inspire new generation of people to foods and the land.”

Further, Gunderson shared a twist on words  that rings, “Field to Fork” the expression of personal and social to generate sustainable agriculture.” She said, “if young people grow vegetables they will eat them.”

The fresh food diagnostic is treating the symptoms of obesity, apathy, lethargy and disease with health foods that feed the body and mind. The ability to access affordable foods is mission and vision that impact is critical to a sustainable society. The work of social entrepreneurs endeavor to create change to positively impact their ecosystem and supply chain toward sustainability.
