ASAP aims to cultivate a community of “civic eaters,” engaged citizens linked together by a common commitment to knowing where their food comes from and understanding the impacts of their food choices. Civic eaters are connected to the process of food production and preparation and support local food’s lasting impacts on the community, environment, and local economy. This theory is grounded in ASAP’s conviction that when the distance between consumer and producer decreases, transparency in the food system increases and drives changes that increase public health, build local economies, and sustain family farms.
