Connecting Rural Groceries and Farms

Helianth is exploring ways to better connect rural groceries with the farms that, while largely rural in nature, often do not provide fresh produce to their community’s retail outlets.

This is a major challenge for food security and sustainability. To further this effort, we are connecting with other practitioners in the field, developing research initiatives, and contributing to position statements that demonstrate the opportunity and value of shortening grocery supply chains to better serve both rural communities and farmers. Our goal is to help demystify what is possible by working to advance proven approaches.
