Dr. Hunt presents his research comparing the local food movements in the US and England. Using longitudinal empirical evidence, he finds that local food projects in the US are more collaborative than those in England. His research demonstrates that increasing inclusion in civil society can increase policy outcomes despite countervailing trends of social segregation and political polarization.
Dr. Hunt has spent many years working with policymakers and practitioners in Washington, D.C. to advocate for local food systems. In 2010 he formed Local Food Strategies LLC in 2010 where he is currently the Principal. Dr. Hunt has a PhD in Rural Development from Newcastle University's Centre for Rural Economy.
