KCD Strengthens Local Food Economy
In early 2015 we initiated a new KCD Regional Food System Program to support King County farmers, expand acreage in food production, improve food access, and increase the demand for local farm products. Our aim is help grow the local food economy through a combination of action initiatives, grants, and collaboration with partner organizations.
