We work to re-invigorate our local food system and preserve our food heritage. We build connections among all stakeholders (and eaters!) in our region with community-wide events like the Local Food Summit and the HomeGrown Festival. We organize special events (like Pie Lovers Unite! and potlucks) centered around the pleasure of enjoying food with friends and family. We build connections with local farmers and food artisans to help our community learn about the path their food took before arriving on their plate. We advocate for healthy food access.
