Shortening the food system supply chain from rural to urban communities will lead to less transportation needed, less energy used and less food waste. All three of these sectors, transportation, energy and food waste, are some of the biggest contributors to GHG in the atmosphere. If less food is wasted from transportation spoilage, not only will food waste and its ensuing methane be reduced, but more hungry mouths will be fed. Additionally, less energy will be used to keep non-perishable goods safe along the transportation route if the route it takes is shorter. Improving the logistics of moving food from one location to another will lead to a reduction in transportation needed to move said food. Less transportation means a decrease in fossil fuels used.
