Healthy and Local Food
Food is a vital component to making a sustainable community. Supporting the local economy by buying from Minnesota farmers and being healthy through access to nutritious food is a goal of the City of Saint Paul. With an activist community around food issues, Saint Paul is creating an environment that is supportive and encouraging of increased consumption, production and distribution of healthy, sustainable and locally grown food.
The City of Saint Paul supports many initiatives to help achieve this goal, including increasing access to community garden sites
, conducting an agricultural zoning study
, and participating in the joint Saint Paul-Ramsey County Food and Nutrition Commission
