The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning is currently partnering with the City of Chicago and several community-based organizations to work on local food issues at a variety of levels (region, city, neighborhood, and site). Drawing on a case study of the Green Healthy Neighborhood project, this session will explore how urban agriculture projects have been integrated into planning and policy initiatives to improve food security, bolster public health, and revitalize the region.
