A Letter From Our Executive Director
To Central Texas food enthusiasts and SFC supporters:
Last year, our agency invested in outside consultation to help us address the critical issues of farmland loss, east Austin displacement and environmental degradation given Austin’s explosive growth. As a result of this 9-month visioning session, and with input from a large number of our partners, we’re pivoting to focus more upstream to deal with the systemic and policy issues surrounding farm viability and food access and education.
We also have a reimagined set of core values and goals, as well as a renewed mission statement to cultivate a just and regenerative food system so that people and the environment can thrive!
