Tompkins County residents are invited to share their thoughts on our local food system and their priorities for improving it in a brief online survey hosted by Tompkins Food Future, a community-based planning initiative.The survey takes 10 minutes or less to complete, and can be found at: https://www.tompkinsfoodfuture.org/participate. The survey has been extended and will remain open through 3/15/21.
Organizers hope to gather input from stakeholders across Tompkins County including individual consumers and households, those experiencing food insecurity and those working to alleviate it, producers, processors, retailers, people working to reduce food waste, and others. Survey responses will provide an overview of the challenges, strengths and needs of our community, and will be used to develop a comprehensive food system plan and recommendations, to be distributed in May 2022.
