The Community Perceptions of Local Foods Monograph is now in print and available to view.
Local food has become a common and loaded term in public discourse. To use the term
local food effectively, researchers must better understand the public’s understanding
and conceptualization of it. This study sought to better understand the definitions,
perceptions, and values related to local food in the State College area of Pennsylvania.
It utilized a transdisciplinary framework that encouraged purposeful engagement with
the public, as well as contributions from scholars across various academic disciplines.
