2019 Regional Food System Grant Program Awardee: South King County Food Coalition

Awardee

South King County Food Coalition (fiscal sponsor for the Food Access and Aggregation Community Team)

Project

Food Access and Aggregation Community Team Site Exploration

Description

The Food Access and Aggregation Community Team will complete necessary preparations, build organizational capacity and bring in new community stakeholders to be able to cooperatively manage a farm property in South King County that is being acquired by King County. The South King County Food Access and Aggregation Community Team (FAACT) is developing a robust plan to manage this farm property in partnership with King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks. The vision of coordinating the use of shared farm and food on a land leasing arrangement would suit both parties. If DNRP does not succeed in securing the site, or the arrangement does not work for another reason, DNRP has expressed their commitment to help the FAACT locate a suitable farm property for this project at another location.
