Puget Sound Food Infrastructure Exploration

In 2018, the Bullitt Foundation and the members of Sustainable Communities Funders supported an exploratory project to understand the landscape of infrastructure needs to support a more equitable, restorative, and prosperous food system in the Puget Sound.

This exploration consolidates a wide variety of information related to food system infrastructure in the Puget Sound, including past research and current projects, to help a wide variety of stakeholders engage in ongoing and new project development. And finally, this exploration also attempts to highlight where people of color and/or community-based organizations were explicitly engaged, or not, in order to prompt further discussion of whether all relevant perspectives are adequately engaged in the formulation of next steps.
