Food Systems #2: Interconnectedness

In our previous blog, we explained that the food system is all about how food gets from the farm, to your plate, and everything in between! At GoFarm, each of our programs focus on specific aspects of this food chain, primarily:

  • The Farmer Assistance program focuses on how we grow our food

  • The Local Food Share program focuses on how we distribute our food

  • The Community Food Access program focuses on who can access and afford our food.

These three programs are interconnected, and just like the food system itself, they overlap and work together to make our local food system, and our communities stronger.
