Community Food Systems Projects
Webmaster: Rick Piel
Food Works is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization facilitating the development of a regional
food economy in Southern Illinois. We believe that a truly enduring approach emphasizes access
to good food for everyone, keeps food dollars circulating in local communities, and balances
human needs with the health of the air, water and land resources on which all life depends.
Food Works envisions a region where:
- Local farmers have access to education they need to be economically, ecologically, and socially sustainable.
- The community has greater access to food that is grown on local, sustainable farms.
- Community members have a better understanding of the value of locally grown food.
