This research will create a connection between sustainable agriculture and rising food costs and determine the effect that has on food insecure families. So that we can begin to understand where the pitfalls of our agriculture industry lie and begin reforming them in a sustainable and cost effective way. For this research I had to provide evidence to support the following claims:

  1. Current agricultural practices are not sustainable and therefore need to be reformed.
  2. Food costs in Idaho are on the rise.
  3. Food insecurity in Idaho is a prevalent issue.
  4. Rising food costs are contributed to by costs associated with sustainable agriculture.
