The Appalachian Livable Communities partnership, launched in 2012, helps Appalachian small towns and rural communities improve their livability by promoting economic development while safeguarding the local landscape. The partnership is the model for the recently announced federal Local Foods, Local Places initiative, which aims to help communities create more livable places by promoting local foods. In December, eight Appalachian communities were selected through a Local Foods, Local Places grant competition to receive technical assistance and implementation support to help them integrate local food systems into their economic development action plans.
The list of all 8 cities:

Aberdeen, Mississippi
Anniston, Alabama
Corbin, Kentucky
Forest City, North Carolina
Huntington, West Virginia
New Albany, Mississippi
North Wilkesboro, North Carolina
Pikeville, Tennessee

Great minds think alike! I saw this on the City of Huntington Face Book page and thought it was too good not to share. I really like the way they promote stuff like this on there. It really gets the word out and helps to celebrate our wins, which is something we've been terrible about as a city in the past. I'm really glad to see that changing.
