Agrihoods are turning urban vacant lots into free food for thousands. One in Detroit has grown to the point that it is providing free food to 2,000 households. All of that comes from a two acre garden and 200 fruit trees. It is not a total solution because dietary needs vary and there are foods like meat, dairy, and grains that may not be provided; but the ability to provide fresh produce in otherwise culinary deserts is being demonstrated in a variety of cities.  Decentralized solutions also are more likely to meet local needs and integrate best with local culture.
