Local food movement benefits Seattle

Many great things are going on in Seattle and our region to create a sustainable and healthy food system that works for everyone. Innovative programs, such as training homeless youth to grow food or providing fresh food options in “food deserts,” benefit our community in a variety of ways – job and economic development, equitable access to healthy food, and reducing hunger.

Here are just a few of the latest things going on – Seattle is fortunate to have a thriving and growing local food movement leading the way.
