Sorry Jenny but,

 The gates foundation has no real interest in local food only trendy PR.
 The do have a serious interest partnering with Monsanto and dumping GMO's
on Africa<http://www.grist.org/article/2010-01-08-gates-foundation-agribusiness-dryden/>,
which of course will be detrimental in the short and long term.  If I've
learned anything at all in my life is that don't trust wealthy industrialist
to save the world, they never have and never will.  Check out this expose
<http://punkrockpermaculture.com/2010/01/11/can-permaculture-save-detroit/>on
the Hantz Farm project (aka giant gentrification land grab) in Detroit to
see exactly what I mean.
