Signal Mountain, a small town in Tennessee, recently approved a Green Food Resolution, promising to rely more on locally-grown organic food with a greater emphasis on plant-based diets. The Signal Mountain Council will expand healthy food options by supporting local farmers’ markets, community gardens, and community-supported agriculture programs. The resolution is part of Farm Sanctuary’s Green Food Resolutions Campaign, which appeals to city governments to adopt legislation that reduces meat consumption and commits to more sustainable living practices. Chicago and New York City have proposed similar legislation, but Signal Mountain is the first community to take such decisive action.
