OPEN FOOD booklets promote participation in local + urban food systems.
Each booklet in the series introduces a different slice of local food, opening eyes to the importance and possibility of becoming a part of your food system. Launched with a Kickstarter campaign, the first three booklets are funded. We are producing 6 to 8 booklets, each about 14 pages long and focused on a different topic. All proceeds from booklets go straight into designing, researching, and printing the next booklet.
These booklets give you the tools to get engaged, informed, and to take the next steps. We talk about why local and urban food is so important, why different parts of it matter to your community, and then we point you in the direction of more information so you can dig in as deep as you want to go.
