Spokane Food Access Coalition
The goal of the Food Access Coalition (FAC) is to get real, nutritious, planet-friendly food into the kitchens, hands and mouths of all residents. The coalition works with community partners to create viable strategies to ensure people have reliable access to healthy foods in the future. Members include Washington State University Extension, Second Harvest Inland Northwest, Catholic Charities, Department of Ecology, farmers, farmers market managers, faith based agencies, Meals on Wheels, Salvation Army, elected officials, and many others.
Over the last three years, the FAC has held multiple community events to raise awareness about the importance of food and Spokane’s health, environment and economic prosperity. The coalition has contributed to the writing of several documents. For these references and other resources please visit the FAC website at www.realfoodspokane.org
The FAC welcomes new members. Please sign up on the website. We do not currently have regular meetings for all members but anticipate a more regular meeting schedule starting after tour upcoming April conference, “Building a Prosperous and Healthy Regional Food Economy: A Road Map."
