Local Food is Essential Fund

The Local Food is Essential Fund was founded to raise awareness, and participation, around the local food system. The primary avenues for accomplishing these goals are through a marketing campaign, website, consumer pledge, market materials and co-sponsorship/co-branding of existing community events like the Minnesota State Fair and Farm to School Month.
