Valley Kai

Valley Kai

Valley Kai's aim is to increase Food Resilience in the Valley.

A resilient community can withstand the adversity that life throws at it, whether it's a community-wide response to natural disasters or pandemics that disrupt food supplies, or individual household support during financially and emotionally trying times. We all need access to nutritious, fresh, local food to be a resilient community.

We've been thinking about how we can make our entire community's access to this food more secure. How can we make it easier to raise, produce, share, and sell local food?

The following are some of the Valley's continuing local food initiatives:
