sustainable, equitable, healthy and affordable 

for all members of our community

a food plan for everyone

Communities plan for the future. Good plans can guide sound decision-making and improve quality of life for all residents. A food system plan for Tompkins County can help tell the story of food in our community.

A coordinated, strategic approach to understanding the current challenges we face can help build a stronger, more equitable, and more sustainable food system for the future.

As we capture the stories of our community, we can identify steps to improve the programs, policies, and individual actions that shape our local food system.
