About:  Do you want to know more about the food insecurity challenges Buffalo County faces? Join our public meetings, where a panel of local experts will talk about the work that is being done to increase local food access in the area.

With an individualized focus at each public meeting, the goal will be to identify food security gaps and ways to increase economic opportunities for produce farmers and value-added producers at farmers markets, farm stands, and by accepting SNAP and Double Up Food Bucks.
