Why We Need Healthy Local Food Systems

Since the 1990s CAN has been working for new economies in the rural areas of Central Appalachia. One way to build them is by growing healthy local food systems. In this slide show you can see and hear why CAN members Anthony Flaccavento, Larry Fisher and Tom Redfern do the work they do.
