Hi Samuel mongoni 
Thank you for your submission and vision. To further build a stronger Vision for your chosen place, the following questions/comments might come in handy for you;: - Could you explain how your Vision will address the following six interconnected themes: Environment, Diets, Economics, Culture,Technology, Policy in your place? - How might you evolve your Vision to make it more inclusive and systemic for your local food system and its numerous stakeholders? Do you already have a change to connect to some stakeholders regarding your Vision? Is the Vision compelling enough that investors, policy makers, inventors, and cultural influencers would take note?
Also you can check criteria of evaluation the Vision on the Food System Vision Prize website in the section "How Your Vision will be Evaluated"
