Growing a Resilient Local Food Economy
end of year giving for a healthier 2023
Central Rivers Farmshed has made a commitment to help progress health equity in the community. Throughout the 2022 year we have activated and expanded multiple programs that economically support local farms, increase access to cultural and nutritious foods for the Hmong community and rural Portage County residents, and connect the community with their local growers and business owners. To allow us to expand upon our work in building a resilient food economy and supporting food security efforts, we are asking the community to give what they can to help bring more locally sourced, healthy, cultural foods to more people in 2023.

Farmshed's Commitment to an Inclusive Local Food Community
Access to healthy local food is important, but alone it is not enough. We see this as an opportunity to be challenged to realize the inclusive community of farmers, entrepreneurs, businesses, and impassioned eaters that is essential to becoming a resilient local food community. We are looking forward to discussing your commitment, your ideas, and your questions.
