The choices we make about what we eat has become a radical act. Food today has complex and wide-reaching impacts on individual and societal health, economics, and the planet. What we eat is at the core to humanity’s interconnected social, economic, and environmental challenges.
This is why we aspire to be part of a healthier food system, a living value chain that connects our diverse humanity, our traditions and cultures through food. We are all locals in this global village. For Local Village, food is the currency of connection.
Food is our currency for connection.
Conscious, pan-African, living.
Those that belong to our village care about what they eat, the hands that cultivate, and how it is marketed and sold. They are conscious, pan-African, living in the cities of the world, but who crave the tastes of their rural homes. They are global citizens whose sophisticated palates are open to experiencing different tastes of the continent.
This is the spirit of the village. We like to think of it as a win-win-win.
By supporting us you become part of our village and your membership ensures you enjoy sustainably grown, indigenous ingredients. At the same time this secures livelihoods through maintaining the demand for the produce of small, rural agri-preneurs from the continent while helping us to grow our market and platform for connecting people and sharing Africa’s abundance.
