Athens Local Food Links

The University of Georgia Local Food Systems Certificate


In the last 5-10 years, the Athens Georgia area has become alive with local food activities, programs and business. This reflects a nation-wide movement promoting the benefits of locally grown. Though this term means many things, depending on who you are and where you live, in Athens, the local food movement embodies a combined interest in food grown in the area with a concern for those less fortunate. This reflects the wide spectrum of people living in one of the poorest counties in the country.
