Content The Canastas Comunitarias, a movement started by families to address their concerns over food prices provides a clear example of an approach that highlights the importance of showcasing peoples’ experiences as an inspiration for social change. Today, the movement has expanded to six cities in Ecuador and has diversified to address new concerns, but remains a perfect example of the benefits of local food systems.
