The need to build more resilient and healthy food systems is clear. For decades, our nation's food system has depended on subsidies, cheap labor, fickle commodity markets and the degradation of land and water. People of all backgrounds recognize that it is time for change.
Montana Food Matters brings together in one searchable library a wide range of stories that illustrate, inspire, and inform. Educators, leaders, advocates, food system professionals and community members across Montana can use this library to easily find and share examples of real people doing real work, and new ideas and paradigms in action.
