Healthy food for everyone through collaboration, education and promoting self-reliance.
To grow a thriving local food system where consumers make informed decisions; farmers make a decent living while prioritizing ecological stewardship of the land; and all people – regardless of income – have access to healthy food. We push beyond the immediate demands of hunger relief toward community food security (and hunger prevention) with programming that expands our community’s capacity to feed each other today and into the future.
1) Food and quality nutrition is the foundation for well-being for the individual. The well-being of our community is directly linked to the health of the soil and ecosystem that feeds us;
2) All people, regardless of income, deserve access to healthy, affordable, and culturally appropriate food at all times;
3) Healthy behaviors are rooted in an appreciation and re-valuing of the food, land, and people that provide for us;
4) To move from emergency handouts toward long-term community food resilience, we must prioritize community capacity building and development of the individual’s sense of agency;
5) We are engaged in an evolving conversation and thus programming must remain responsive and dynamic to shifting community priorities and needs.
6) All parts of the system are inter-connected and thus solutions must benefit multiple stakeholders of the food system;
7) Diversity- cultural, biological, socio-economic, linguistic- cultivates and strengthens individual and community resilience
