CDFA Reframe, Build, Plan: Restoring America's Local Food Systems



CDFA released the final publication of the CDFA Food Finance White Paper Series, Advancing Local Food Systems Through Development Finance. Research on food systems finance and leadership along with pilot projects has positioned CDFA to identify three key strategies for a comprehensive approach to restoring America's local food systems: Reframe food systems development as infrastructure and economic development; Build effective relationships and partnerships across the entire food system; and Plan for strategic food systems financing. Join us for an overview of this publication as we review CDFA's framework for expanding traditional financing and attracting capital to local food systems through the Reframe, Build, Plan approach.
