Here's how we Are working towards a just & Resilient regional food system...
Building an Equitable Food System
La Plata County Health Equity & Food Systems Coalition is comprised of individuals, organizations, and agencies all committed to creating equity, sharing power, and building equal access to health...all through food.
Reduce food waste, save bears, and feed community by listing your fruit tree to be harvested or joining in on a community harvest with the GFC!
We support local producers by providing much-needed labor in the form of a Mobile Farm Workforce, as well as, facilitated market development!
Roots of Health
With an intent to ensure that healthcare workers have access to healthy, convenient, and affordable food, this Employee Foodshare program supplies hospital employees with weekly shares of fresh veggies sourced from local farmers.
Farms to Food Assistance Project
Through this local food purchasing program, we bridge the gap between local farmers and food banks. Farmers are paid at wholesale value, and food banks receive the food free of charge!
