MSU Center for Regional Food Systems – The Local Food Movement: Setting the Stage for Good Food
The local food movement in the United States has evolved over the past 25 years, including a more recent convergence with movements supporting food access and health, food justice, environment, food sovereignty, and racial equity. Many people who are active in these movements have come to understand local food through its connection and use of the term “good food,” coined less than a decade ago by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) and its strategic partners. The term “good food” has been used to describe food that has four key elements: Healthy, Green, Fair, Affordable.
