New Nonprofit Collective Aims to Strengthen Local Food Systems

BY MYERS REECE // AUG 11, 2019 // FLATHEAD BEACON

Glacier FEAST is a newly formed nonprofit collective whose mission is to strengthen local food systems in the Flathead Valley.

Local growers and food advocates formed Glacier FEAST (Farmers and Eaters Advocating Sustainability Together) “with the intention of supporting the expansion of Flathead Valley’s food growing economy into a thriving community-based system that is values-based and enhances the community’s economic, nutritional, social and environmental health,” according to a press release.

“Recognizing that a fully-functioning system includes everyone (if you eat, you’re in!), Glacier FEAST, a project of FarmHands Nourish, seeks to build awareness and help connect the dots in the system by bringing folks to the table from all parts of the local food system, including: producers, processors, distributors, consumers, and recycling/recovery,” the group stated.
