Connecting Local Farms to Forks

We envision a resilient regional food system that sustains the land, producers, and healthy communities.     

Mission

 Valley Food Partnership strengthens the regional food system and community well-being through     education, access to quality local foods, and promotion of sustainable agricultural practices.

  • Community Education VFP provides community programs, education and events that improve access to healthy food and farming techniques, and inspire positive behavioral changes in both consumers and producers;
  • Strengthening Local Food SystemsVFP works to increase the capacity of the regional food system infrastructure and looks for opportunities to improve production, marketing, distribution and value-added capabilities at the Montrose Farmers Market and beyond; and,  
  • Policy – VFP acknowledges the importance of food and agriculture policy at all levels and maintains communication with policymakers and advocacy groups on local food system issues that improve health, racial equity and advocacy.

 

I am involved with the Valley Food Partnership because I want to see a significant change in the role that local foods play in culture, economy, land use, health and attitude of the valley community.
