 Local Food Assessment:  All proceeds will be used for a local food assessment to be performed by the Treasure Valley Food Coalition (TVFC).  The assessment is essential to inform the development of a sustainable local food system through the evaluation of factors limiting the production and distribution of local food.  A food assessment will answer questions such as:

  • How much and what type of food is grown in the Treasure Valley?
  • How much food  and what type of food is needed for our Treasure Valley population?
  • How much food is imported and exported?
  • How is local food distributed?
  • How accessible is the local food that is available?
  • What factors impact the production, processing and distribution of local food?
