KUOW Spotlight: KCD Strengthens Local Food System

Farming Area Sign

In the past two years KCD’s Regional Food System Grant Program awarded $1.4 million in grants for 20 projects aimed at strengthening the local food economy. The diverse and innovative projects will contribute to the economic viability of local farmers, encourage new farmers, expand acreage in food production, improve food access, and increase demand for King County farm products.

King Conservation District’s Regional Food System Program was initiated in 2015 to link producers with consumers and to serve as a catalyst for making local food production environmentally and economically sustainable.
