The WSU Food Systems Team is a multi-disciplinary voluntary group of both WSU and non-WSU professionals working across the food system. We partner with communities throughout the state to foster viable farm businesses, optimize sustainable natural resource stewardship, and promote scaled processing and distribution, always in the pursuit of access to healthy food for all.
