Community Food Lab and its founder, Erin White, are at the nexus of an emerging local food ecosystem in Raleigh, NC, that is growing around collaboration, collective organizing, and open-ended creative approaches. This presentation will explore the development of three elements of this local food ecosystem: the Raleigh Food Corridor, the Capital Area Food Network, and the Wake County Food Security Plan.

By prioritizing the structures needed to support lasting change, community food system design approaches provide innovative lessons for the community design field.
