ABOUT OUR PLANNING GRANT

Valley Food Partnership is working with a USDA Regional Food System Partnership planning grant from now to April 2022 to grow our regional food system capacity. Throughout 2021 we will be identifying ways to: Improve Coordination between Supply and Demand, Develop Processing and Preservation Solutions, and Optimize Regional Logistics to Bring Down Commerce Costs. Then, in March 2022 we will be submitting a plan for an implementation grant to develop all we discover in the planning phase.
