Think Globally – Eat Locally: San Francisco Foodshed Assessment

American Farmland Trust was challenged by the San Francisco Foundation to investigate how and to what extent people in the City could improve their well-being and reduce their global “footprint” by eating locally, say, from sources of food within 100 miles of the Golden Gate. This publication documents our search for answers– those we found as well as those we didn’t–and recommends a broad course of action aimed at enabling San Francisco and neighboring communities to take better advantage of local sources of food and, thereby, also help the agricultural economy of its “foodshed.”
