*cino: Re-imagining food systems in a rural city
 
 
 
*culture is not optional runs the Huss Project, a former elementary school in Three Rivers, Michigan, that is being transformed into a community center that seeks to grow our rural city’s capacity for imagination. Huss is at the center of a multi-faceted, community-wide effort to strengthen local food systems in our rural city, particularly for low-income households and using universal design principles that improve the system for all. In the inner circle of the ecosystem is an urban farm, a neighborhood farmers market, a food distribution program, and a community-run grocery store. These entities are connected to numerous food producers, businesses, civic organizations, and social service agencies throughout the city. The AmeriCorps VISTA Food Systems Innovation Project will help build the capacity for this system to meet the next level of its potential.
