Reworking Food Production
With 98% of US lettuce grown in California and Arizona, there is a market opportunity to diversify the food system through local production in other parts of the country. Little Leaf Farms have developed a system that allows them to grow fresh lettuce in the cooler climate of New England, reducing food miles and waste and delivering fresher food to consumers on the East Coast. With Bank of America's support, they are also providing economic opportunities for local communities through their innovative, sustainable approach.
