The Multnomah Food Initiative (http://www.thedirt.org/node/4386) will build on existing efforts to create a shared community vision and strategic action plan. It will mean forging partnerships, setting goals, and working collaboratively. Together, we will create a long-term vision and plan for a city and county that feeds itself – sustainably, healthily, equitably, and prosperously.
In planning for this initiative, Multnomah County is preparing a State of Food Report. This report will synthesize existing regional food system assessments and food policy recommendations. It will present case studies that identify processes used by other communities to facilitate food policy planning, including outcomes and best practices. It will also provide a needs-analysis to determine macro-level conditions necessary to implement recommendations and accomplish goals.
There is tremendous work being done in our community around food system issues. Multnomah County would like your feedback on what will be presented in the State of Food Report, as well as your comments on what may be missing or should be considered.
