Foodshed Development

The Foodshed Development program is a way for the organization to systematically provide support at a grassroots level for farmers, food-based businesses, and organizations in specific geographic areas. This program is currently funded through the Appalachian Regional Commission’s POWER grantee program and has placed 5 foodshed coordinators throughout the state to cover 17 counties. These coordinators are working as connectors between community and other partner resources, assisting with farm and business planning activities, and working within communities with teams to host placemaking events, trainings, and build hyper-local food systems.
