Current Strategy Focus

  • Our focus is access to quality foods that are also culturally familiar. To do this we:

    • Have been getting into the community in the form of tabling at events and door knocking. We recently distributed May Day baskets that included information about food-related resources and a seed packet and seed starter soil.
    • Are exploring existing resources and compiling information to share with the community, as well as partnering with organizations such as SNAP to reduce barriers to access to high quality and affordable foods.
