Food Systems resources

HCW previously convened a Food Systems Action Team (FSAT), with the mission to improve Wyandotte County's food environment so that all residents can and want to eat healthy food. Unfortunately, due to resource and staffing constraints, FSAT was put on hold at the end of 2018.

Though FSAT no longer convenes, we wanted to make sure our partners still had access to the information and resources below about food systems in Wyandotte County.

We hired consultants to take stock of the Wyandotte County food system and give us a series of recommendations to make it more equitable for everyone. 

The H2O to Grow fund provides financial and technical assistance to community gardens that wish to have direct access to water on site.

The FSAT knows how important reducing food waste is to not only prevent climate change, but also to feed people in need. We are working hard to put good food to good use feeding people and keeping it out of the landfill.
