Mission

The mission of the Grand Traverse Foodshed Alliance (GTFA) is to strengthen local food markets in the Grand Traverse region with the goal of increasing access to, demand for, and consumption of safe, healthy local food, and improving the viability of small-scale farms, for the benefit of consumers, farmers, and the community as a whole. These goals address the underlying public health, economic, environmental, and social challenges related to (1) the lack of access to healthy food in underserved areas, and (2) developing a more resilient small and mid-sized farm economy to promote economic development, particularly in economically challenged rural areas.
