About this funder:



PHSACF’s Good Food Initiative aims to increase the viability of local agriculture in order to increase the likelihood that farming will remain an integral and valuable part of our community and quality of life.  The Initiative has four goals:

  • Help farmers/livestock producers keep their land in farming
  • Boost the economy through expanded production and purchase of local food and food products
  • Improve access by those in need to nutritious foods from local sources
  • Increase community appreciation for local food and farming

Among the objectives of the Initiative are to encourage buyers, including institutional purchasers, to give priority to local food sources whenever possible, and to support more opportunities for students and those in need to eat fresh, local foods.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
