BECAUSE WE VALUE EDUCATION, WE SUPPORT
- Public awareness of the role of food systems in our lives.
- Promoting the connections between our health, the environment, and our food choices.
- Programs for current and future farmers, home gardeners, food producers, and others involved in the food system.
- Initiatives and programs that develop food literacy* for everyone.
*Food Literacy is knowing about food, having food skills and feeling confident when choosing, preparing, and eating food. It also involves making healthier food decisions most of the time. Food literacy is improved by having a supportive food system; food environment; living situation; and culture and traditions.
