Our mission is to strengthen the health and vibrancy of the Palouse-Clearwater Food System and increase the production, distribution, and consumption of locally grown food and agriculture products.

Local Food

Regional food systems shape livability and quality of life for years to come. Get connected with farmers markets, community gardens, food banks, community kitchens, local food restaurants, and more.
