5.2. Diversify and strengthen the local agri-food sector with a focus on serving local food needs

Supporting and continuing to build our agricultural and agri-food industry can increase the amount of food that we grow, make, and consume locally. This significantly reduces the energy needed to transport food into and out of the region. Supporting our local agricultural community directly contributes to strengthening our local economy, and increases our resilience by reducing our reliance on international supply chains.
