Flagstaff Foodlink aims to offer strong educational, organizational and fundraising tools to the exciting, emergent local food movement in the greater Flagstaff community.
Our country is in the midst of a health and healthcare crisis, global climate change and an economic and energy crisis. Producing local, healthy, affordable food for ourselves and our children is a powerful solution for all of these dilemmas. Flagstaff Foodlink believes there are abundant opportunities to connect farmers, ranchers, restaurateurs, food distributors and sellers, the general public, community organizations, and the governments of the City of Flagstaff and Coconino County into a food network to encourage local economic self-sufficiency, community and individual health, greater food security and energy-conserving agricultural practices.
There are so many hard-working and creative members of this community that share the vision for a more resilient, healthier and more profitable local food system. By creating sustainable agriculture curricula for Flagstaff schools, convening members of the Flagstaff food system on a regular basis and channeling funding opportunities to food system innovators, Flagstaff Foodlink offers an organizational body through which to catalyze profound change in the way we produce, consume and value local foods here in Flagstaff.
We invite all those who are interested in working on revitalizing Flagstaff’s food system to contact us and join the network!
