There is rising interest in local foods as a way to stimulate community economic development  while also contributing to local farm viability, healthy eating habits among consumers, and community food security and resilience. Despite these trends, those working in local foods, and those interested in future work in local foods, often have not received formal training about interdisciplinary, systems approaches and existing research in this emerging field. In order to address this gap, this course will provide participants with an overview of local food systems research, as well as resources to support translation of research into practice using interdisciplinary, systems approaches.
