#ForewordFriday: Food Town, USA

Healthy, sustainable fare is changing communities across this country, revitalizing towns that have been ravaged by disappearing industries and decades of inequity. In Food Town, USA: Seven Unlikely Cities that are Changing the Way We Eat Mark Winne travels across the US to find out what sparked this food revolution. What he discovered was remarkable, even inspiring.

One of the cities Winne visited is Sitka, Alaska, a city that is accessible only by air or water. Sika has some of the highest food prices in the country but Sitkans have mobilized to create alternative food production and distribution methods.  Learn more about Sitka in the excerpt below.
