Local Food Local Jobs

We are very excited to have released our newest report, "Local Food Local Jobs: Job Growth and Creation in the Pioneer Valley Food System."

Our report seeks to answer the questions: If more of what people ate in the Pioneer Valley came from the Pioneer Valley, would it create jobs? And, if so, what would those jobs be?

Of course, the answer to these questions is complex and explored in depth in the report. But the short answer is yes. Local food creates local jobs across the food system -- from seed to soil. We hope you enjoy the report.
