Foodshed Collaboration

We are community members who care about making local, healthy food more broadly available to everybody in the Tampa Bay area. We are farmers, distributors, chefs, non-profits, businesses, policy makers and community members. 

A "foodshed" is the area where your food comes from. Because we are focused on local food, this includes an area approximately 100 miles extending out from Tampa Bay - our local foodshed. We hope to increase its health and abundance. Other organizations are working on this - this meeting is focused on specific actions. 

At this meeting, we will share needs and resources, and discuss issues of concern. 

We will focus on taking what we accomplished at the first meeting to the next level. The context is thinking in systems, and holistic design. What elements are needed in our foodshed? 

We would love to hear from anybody interested in promoting, enhancing and expanding the local foodshed in Tampa Bay as to what goals you would like to see us accomplish as a community, what concerns you have in regard to foodshed matters, and anything else you'd like to share with us.
