Washington State University’s Food Systems Team provides research-based information and educational programs for farmers, consumers, decision-makers, and others involved in local food systems.
Our goals are to:
- Build public support for agriculture
- Preserve Washington farmland for food and fiber production
- Help farmers adopt practices that are sustainable—economically, socially and environmentally
- Unify farmers and consumers in developing local markets and community food access
The team is a statewide affiliation of professionals from WSU, state agencies, and non-governmental organizations.
The WSU Food Systems Program is a program of WSU Extension within the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences. The program focuses on education resources for farmers, outreach to communities, and team-based research with farmers.
The Food Systems Team and the Food Systems Program are dedicated to helping sustainable, community-based agricultural systems throughout Washington. We are here to help. Please explore the resources on this web site and contact us if we can help you further.
