Food Matters in Sonoma County is a coalition of local organizations and individuals with decades of experience working in agriculture, community organizing, nutrition, health services, food retail, pubic policy, food services, and school districts.

Values

  • Food is a vital part of every day life and should be valued.

  • People need to understand the vital links between human health, fresh food, and stewardship of our environment.

  • Public policies should promote the stability of our local food system and health.

  • Collaboration is needed for sustainability and community support.
