Southern SAWG has published a handbook to aid Community Food Systems
development in the Southern region.  "Food Security Begins at Home:
Community Food Coalitions in the South" ushers readers through the
of forming diverse community collaborations, conducting community food
assessments, addressing food policy issues and conducting profitable
projects that are the driving force of Community Food Security programs.
Included are many profiles of successful community food coalitions,
references to community food system organizations and sources for free
low-cost informational resources.  The handbook was funded by the USDA
Community Food Projects Competitive Grants Program.

Released in June, 2005, this 158-page book is available in CD format for
$10.  Handbook chapters are fully-searchable, using Adobe Acrobat Reader
software that is included on the CD.
