What is it about?

This study examines the potential for being healthy: the ability to adapt and to self-manage practices of participation in local food communities (focusing on Community Supported Agriculture). This study extends the health psychology/food consumption literature to include new knowledge about how local food communities facilitate individual efforts to enhance their own potential for health as well as improving the understanding of the mechanisms that underpin a healthy diet.

Perspectives

Increasing the presence of local food communities might be part of developing strategies to evaluate the health effects of the local food environment and to encourage consumers to take responsibility for their own health.
