Healthy Food

This group seeks an equitable, resilient, healthy food system for Oxford County.  A food system includes everything that goes into how food is produced and how food goes from where it’s made to where it’s consumed, and the food waste that occurs during this process. 

Key Accomplishments:

  • Workgroup members helped to coordinate the first annual Western Foothills Food Festival in the summers of 16' & 17'. This celebration of local food was a huge success and has become a yearly event.

  • Member organizations, including two local food councils, have held food film showings, seed swaps, bulk seed orders, educational workshops, and more.
