The intent of this Imperative is to integrate opportunities for connecting the community to locally grown fresh food.
All projects must dedicate a portion of their total project area to growing food, or they must dedicate a smaller portion of their total project area to growing food and must also directly provide weekly community access to healthy local food that address a community need, through farmers markets, CSA programs or other local food producers.
|LIVING TRANSECT||Percent of total project area for Agriculture|
Agriculture and food access
|1||5%||2% and weekly access|

|3||15%||7% and weekly access|
|4||10%||5% and weekly access|

Scale jumping can be used as the means to expand the availability of healthy, local food (through agriculture or other means) to a specific population or the community in general via an off-site location such as a food bank, school, or other community resource.
All projects (except residential projects) must provide access to food for 75% of FTE occupants for a minimum of three days during an emergency.
Residential projects must demonstrate the capacity to store at least a two-week supply of food.
