Mohawk Valley Food Action Network
MVFAN works to address ways to create a healthy, secure, and resilient local food system where food is affordable, nutritious, and accessible to all.
Our work is guided by:
Healthy People – having access to food that support healthy eating patterns
Healthy Economy – being an advocate for economic development through food system business opportunities
Healthy Environment – supporting the development of a diverse local food and transportation system
The work of MVFAN is based on the premise that the food system - farmers, processors, distributors, retailers, restaurants, emergency food programs, consumers, as well as the businesses and agencies that support them -- comprises a network that has uniquely important and interrelated impacts on the health of our environment, our economy, and individuals.
