Minnesota Food Association works to build a more sustainable food system based on social, economic and environmental justice.
Our mission is to build a more sustainable food system. We seek to impact local food production, grow more sustainable food producers, and enhance their connections to markets and resources. We do our work in the St. Croix River Valley and the Twin Cities Metro Area of Minnesota.
Focus of Programs
Providing education, training and technical assistance in sustainable farming, marketing, business planning, identification and use of resources.
Building partnerships, with funding sources, government and university agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses and individuals to increase public awareness through communication, public events and farm visits.
Marketing directly with consumers through operating a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and retail and wholesale accounts and connecting farmer trainees with their own markets.
