Communities are strong when they support their neighbor’s businesses and cycle wealth rather than let it bleed out, and when they are mindful of those in the community that need the most help. A community is only as strong as its weakest member. One way to improve community strength is to encourage independence at the community level through promotion of diverse and basic provisioning. Production and consumption of whole foods is the first step to building a flourishing local economy. This cornerstone provides an anchor for a wide variety of other businesses that will attract wealth in the form of engaged community members. Use the contact us section to share success stories about how your community has strengthened by partnering with food, or request a meeting to discuss how your community can get started.
