2010 Council Report
The Council’s aim to facilitate a creative environment that will germinate and grow local food networks in Illinois communities statewide through the bridging of all local food efforts: grassroots to Government, small farms to corporate agriculture, urban to rural Illinois. It is through this progressive movement that an Illinois-based farm and food economy will blossom.
The delivery of food to our plate requires a web of interconnected production, processing, and delivery relationships. These relationships begin with soil, farmland, seed, labor, machinery, and farmers for production; extend through processing, storage, distribution and retail; and end with its preparation for the plate and waste management. Each link in the food web can enrich our families, communities and the Illinois economy if structured to do so.
