"Hurricane Lane could serve as a wake-up call on the need for regionalizing local food production."

    This is a powerful piece, thank you Paula! My journey into community-based food systems is marked by my experience in Louisiana just a week after Hurricane Katrina. Seeing those empty shelves, just the photo you showed, lit a fire under my you-know-what to help build local food sovereignty through school, community, and backyard gardens. I appreciate the emphasis here on the role of government and policy to plan for the future. You're a fantastic writer, Paula! Thanks for sharing, Andrew.
