The Food Action Plan is the result of a two-year, broad and diverse community effort to examine the opportunities and challenges of the region’s food system – which includes the growing, harvesting, processing, packing, transporting, selling and eating of food as well as the disposing of food waste. To make our food system more resilient for future generations, the plan calls upon our community to: invest in our food economy, invest in our health and wellness, invest in our community and invest in our foodshed.
