SFC's 2011-2012 Annual Report Released
THE RIGHT CAUSE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME.
What an amazing year for food! On every level - from local to global - the issue of hunger relief and sustainable agriculture are integrally tied together. As food policy decisions play out, Sustainable Food Center holds fast in our mission to cultivate a healthy community by strengthening the local food system and improving access to nutritious, affordable food. Change occurs through policy advocacy as well as grass-roots community organizing, and SFC has been at the forefront of both this year.
