The Connecticut Food System Alliance (CFSA) is invested in imagining and implementing a viable alternative to the dominant food system. The dominant food system is harmful to the environment and people (this harm is disproportionately borne by marginalized and vulnerable people, especially people of color and migrant workers) and shifts economic benefits away from our local communities. For these reasons among others, the dominant food system, as it currently operates, is unsustainable – it literally cannot continue as it is – and must change if it is to realize a more positive vision for our communities. The CFSA envisions a food system that minimizes harm and creates real community benefits by relying more prevalently on local and regional systems to meet much of Connecticut’s food need, and by holding all food system stakeholders, whether local, regional or global, accountable for their impacts.
