We work to:

1. Increase communication, coordination, and collaboration among food system-related organizations, agencies, and institutions.

2. Gain a collective understanding of the barriers and gaps in Whatcom County’s food system and develop common goals for addressing them.

3. Build community capacity through education, leveraging resources, and mutual support.

4. Work inclusively with the diverse communities of our region to ensure lasting success.
