Feather River Food System Collaborative

About Us
We strive to provide more locally sourced farm food year-round to our school students through engaging workshops for school food service and students with hands-on culinary experiences around procurement, preservation, packaging, and helping build connections to local farms. Let's transform how we think about food, from its source to our plates.​
