The Local Motive: Our vast, globalized industrial food system has provided for a more diversified diet and a great deal of cheap food.  Lost, however, is the connection between consumers and the
people who produce their food. This program explores six aspects of Vermont’s local food system. Topics include Production, Processing, Distribution, Farm to Institution, The Consumer and
Food Waste.

This episode explores the relationship between the processing of local food and the financial viability of the local food system, both for producers and consumers. Processing increases shelf life, minimizes waste and improves access to market. It is also economically valuable and necessary to serve the demands of current consumers. In order for farmers to be economically viable and feasible in the current market, they need access to processing facilities and processing partners.

Episode 1 - Vermont leads the nation in local food production and consumption. Even so, as it currently stands only about 7% of our food is sourced locally. The Vermont Farm to Plate food system plan calls for a goal of 10% local food consumption by 2020. The New England Food Vision seeks to achieve 50% of all food consumption in New England to be sourced locally by mid-century. Episode 1 examines these goals, looking at how Vermont currently eats, the supply and demand challenges, and how much land would be needed to attain long-term goals.

Food Waste.

Episode 4 - Institutions such as schools, universities, camps, hospitals and prisons are places where the food consumer often doesn't have much choice. This is food intended to feed large volumes, and has to do so with typically small per capita budgets, USDA nutritional requirements and limited labor and equipment resources. To reach Farm to Plate goals in increasing local consumption, these institutions need to choose local food for their consumer. We?ll look at the paths to bringing local food into institutions and the passionate individuals committed to making Farm to Institution a reality.
