Food Resiliency & Security
While Blacksburg has a thriving and robust local food culture, the reality is the vast majority of the food we consume come from outside the community and the region. A changing climate has the potential to adversely impact and even destabilize national and global food production. This is likely to drive up food prices, and may result in critical food shortages, which will impact those already experiencing food insecurity first and worst. Please weigh in with your ideas for policies and programs that could improve local food system food resiliency and increase food security for Blacksburg residents in a changing climate.
