In 2019, LFA embarked on Food Asset & Needs Mapping to identify community resources and assess utilization, capacity, and needs.
Food Asset & Needs Map
Set to launch in early 2020, our Food Asset & Needs Map will provide a digital inventory of our Wood River Valley Region food system assets, including food production, processing, distribution, access, consumption, and recovery points. From commercial kitchens to cold storage, this interactive tool will display existing resources, and identify what's being underutilized or missing so we can better assist farmers and food producers in building capacity. The GIS map will be embedded onto the LFA website as a free resource for food industry stakeholders such as chefs, food entrepreneurs, and farmers, as well as the broader community.
